I am pleased to write this recommendation for one of my finest interns, Dr. ____ ____, who is applying to earn a master’s degree in public health. I am ____ ____, an Associate Professor in the Virology Department of the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) at the University of Ghana. I serve as an advisor to the WHO in Global Influenza Vaccine Production, Immunization, and Pandemic Influenza Preparedness. I am also the head of Ghana's National Influenza Center and COVID-19 laboratories, which is the focal point laboratory for the National Emergency Operations Center of the Ministry of Health,


____ approached me over a year ago and expressed her profound interest in gaining field skills in medical and molecular research. I saw the passion with which she spoke about her ambition and career goals. Unfortunately, I could not give her feedback regarding her request at that period as I was engaged with National COVID-19 assignments. ____, however, was very persistent in her follow-ups. Finally, in July this year, she landed a position as a research assistant at the Virology Department of the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR).

Her fresh and innovative analysis and recommendation on this project have been essential to our effort to fight and contain this virus.

She has undoubtedly proven to be a valuable member of this research team with her originality, sense of vision, and tremendous potential.
