Sara Khalil

Graduate Student & Teaching Assistant at Northeastern University’s Health Informatics Program, NEHIMSS Webinar Leader



After earning my bachelor’s degree in Biology from Trinity College, I spent two years doing translational medical research at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. There, I became fascinated by the applications of scientific research and how discoveries got translated into medical practice and public health actions to improve healthcare. I decided to pursue a graduate degree in biomedical sciences to get more formal training in biomedical research. I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s graduate school where I earned my master’s degree. Shortly after, I decided to integrate my research background with informatics so that I could address more global and practical problems. I am currently doing my Co-op in analytics and data science organization at Biogen. I am scheduled to graduate from Northeastern University’s Health Informatics program in Aug 2022.
