What makes you passionate about or interested in biostatistics?

My dad and all the patients like him (he suffered from a severe drug adverse reaction). From translational bioinformatics (finding genetic variants predicting the reaction) to clinical informatics (enabling clinical decision support to help doctors identify best therapies) - these informatics disciplines work together to protect future patients from getting harmed by a drug meant to help. This promise to patients is why I get up every day and am proud to be an informatician.​
