Swarna Raman was one of 3 NUI Galway students awarded a Government of Ireland Scholarship. Swarna is current completing a MSc in Regenerative Medicine I consider it as a great opportunity to pursue MSc in Regenerative Medicine, in a research oriented environment at NUIG. The Government of Ireland (GOI) Scholarship awarded to Indian students at Postgraduate level which covers the tuition fee and also provides a substantial stipend is a real boost to me. The reason I chose Regenerative Medicine was mainly due to the therapeutic potential of this field and also the vast opportunities provided to students aiming at a career in research by the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) at NUIG. The structure and methodology of teaching at REMEDI, ensures that students can carry out any scientific work of complex nature, with great confidence. I have been benefitting proficiently by interacting with eminent professors form a wide spectrum of scientific fraternity. It is very exciting to study a unique course that has a great demand in the field of medicine and I feel proud to be part of REMEDI.
