If you want your Statement of Purpose or Personal Statement to be successful, you have to write it in such a way as to make those in charge of the selection process curious about you and to look forward to meeting you. You need to portray yourself in your statement as the kind of person that they want to have in their program. I am a practiced master at drafting your story in the best, most eloquent fashion possible, in the way that is most appealing to those who make the selection. I am so certain of my ability that I draft the first paragraph of your statement free of charge and at no further obligation.  If you really like the first paragraph that I produce, then I would then be honored to finish the statement on your behalf.

Sample 1st Paragraph for the Master’s Degree in Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Saudi Applicant

As long as I can remember I have been intrigued by all living things, in fact, with life itself. This is why I will soon be completing my BS Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of XXX with a Minor in Chemistry. I am a young Saudi man who wants very much to become an international scientist on the front lines of our battles against infectious disease and I see your program as the ideal location to continue my studies towards my long term goal of making important contributions to the medical sciences.

Great Accomplishments in Biology

The great accomplishments in biology affect everyone eventually. That’s why biology is such an important field to explore.

Aristotle: 384–322 BC

The ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, is often not considered when it comes to great biological discoveries, but his work on the classification of living things was revolutionary at the time.

Referred to as the 'Ladder of Life', Aristotle's classification system was still in use until the 19th century (a long time).

Aristotle was the first to person to recognize the relationships between species and organize them accordingly.

Carl Linnaeus: 1707–1775

A botanist, physician and zoologist, Linnaeus came up with the system of naming, ranking, and classifying organisms that we still use today.

It was his vast collection of plant, animal, and shell specimens that lead to Linnaeus' coming up with a way of grouping and naming species. He separated all living things into three kingdoms; animals, plants and minerals, and then subdivided them into classes, orders and finally genura and species.

Charles Darwin: 1809–1882

Probably the most famous naturalist of all time, Darwin's contribution to biology and society is vast: he established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors via the process of natural selection.

Darwin’s theory of evolution was published in his book On the Origin of Species in 1859 and it caused quite the stir. Darwin was disputing the long-held belief that all species had been created by God.

Evolution by natural selection combined with Mendelian genetics is now accepted as the modern evolutionary synthesis and forms the foundations of much biological scientific endeavor. 

Francis Crick and James Watson: 1962

Francis Crick and James Watson shot to fame in 1962 due to their discovery of the structure of DNA, winning the medical Nobel Prize in the process. Their model of DNA (double helix) explains how DNA replicates and how hereditary info is coded and passed on.

The discovery of structure has led to a much more sophisticated understanding of function, used in disease diagnosis and treatment, forensics, etc.

More Recent Discoveries

A Bigger Genetic Alphabet

Everywhere on Earth, the genetic code at the heart of living things consists of the same four genetic letters—except in a flask of Escherichia coli bacteria on a lab bench in southern California.

Researchers there recently engineered the bacteria to incorporate two additional letters into their genetic alphabet.

In addition to the natural nucleotides, in which G pairs with C and A pairs with T, the bacterial DNA includes a novel pair: X and Y.

Researchers around the globe had already devised several pairs of “unnatural” nucleotide bases that, in the test tube, could fit within the DNA's double helix.

They also managed to get DNA's copying machine, an enzyme known as DNA polymerase, to copy some of the new pairs. No one had ever made it all happen inside living organisms before.

The new letters in the E. coli DNA don't code for anything at this point—but in principle, researchers could use them to create designer proteins that include “unnatural” building blocks: amino acids beyond the 20 encoded by the bases in normal DNA.

Cells That Might Cure Diabetes

Since the discovery of human embryonic stem (ES) cells, researchers have been trying to get them to help treat disease.

The quest has been frustratingly slow, despite more than adequate funding. For more than a decade—for example—labs all over the world have sought to turn ES cells into cells of the pancreas called β cells.

β cells respond to rising blood sugar by making insulin: a hormone that allows cells to take up and use glucose. An autoimmune attack that kills β cells leads to type 1 diabetes.

This year, researchers came closer to the goal of using stem cells to somehow treat diabetes, when two groups published methods for growing cells that resemble human β cells.

One approach works with both ES cells and so-called induced pluripotent stem cells: reprogrammed cells that can be made from skin cells.

The recipe is complex, and it takes 7 weeks to convert stem cells into the insulin-producing cells, but researchers can grow 200 million of the β-like cells in a 500-ml flask, which—in theory—is enough to treat a patient. The other method takes 6 weeks and can produce one β-like cell for every two ES cells used.

To use the cells to treat type 1 diabetes, researchers need to develop ways of protecting them from the autoimmune reaction that kills β cells.

Meanwhile, the scientists are studying diabetes in the lab. Researchers have already started to compare β cells made from skin cells of healthy subjects with those made from patients with diabetes, hoping to pinpoint the key differences between them.

A degree in biology can lead to a number of fascinating careers. But the first step involves getting onto the program of your choice. Ready? If you’d like some help creating a compelling personal statement that blows all the other ducks out the water, let us know.
