Edina Harsay, Ph.D. (she/her), has had a passion for science since she was a young child. She taught cell biology and biochemistry to undergraduate and graduate students for more than seven years, and she also has experience as a bench scientist. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to experience the joys of scientific exploration and discovery first-hand. Edina strongly believes that science should be for everyone to enjoy, not just for the experts. She supports the All of Us Research Program because she likes its goal of inclusiveness. Edina likes the fact that the program gives participants the option of learning about the data obtained from the biological samples that they provide and also offers opportunities for ongoing contribution to research projects. Access to scientific knowledge can help people cope with health issues and also empower them to make wise decisions about their health care.
