´I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sharmila as a volunteer for Personalize My Medicine (PMM) over the past two years and greatly appreciate her support and guidance.

Sharmila has been an outstanding mentor and has provided me with numerous opportunities to acquire and develop new skills. Under her guidance, I successfully created the Personalize My Medicine Newsletter on Linkedin and produced engaging videos centred around personalized medicine, which enhanced my communication and presentation skills. She is incredible at motivating the PMM team and initiating discussions on personalized medicine and meaningful platforms that could support patients, researchers and the general public. I have received valuable advice from her during the development of PMM’s gene therapy directory where I gained skills in data entry and presentation. I also had the chance to be a media representative for PMM at the Wired Health conference which furthered my scientific knowledge and improved my skills in networking.

I admire Sharmila’s dedication to advocate for personalized medicine, medical innovation and rare diseases through PMM and I look forward to seeing PMM grow. Sharmila is a fantastic mentor and I’m grateful for the opportunity to have worked with her.I’ve had the pleasure of working with Sharmila as a volunteer for Personalize My Medicine (PMM) over the past two years and greatly appreciate her support and guidance.
