USP Profile

Genaro Scavello
2007 Bioinformatics, MS

Ambitions for professional growth played a big role in Genaro Scavello’s decision to pursue his master’s degree in Bioinformatics. He also had pressing practical reasons—including the increasing complexity of his work at QIAGEN, the leading provider of sample and assay technologies. Trained as a wet-bench scientist, Scavello started to take on large projects at QIAGEN that required connectivity to databases and statistical analyses. “The USciences program was comprehensive and prepared me well, with research and didactic elements,” says Scavello. “But the professors were the best part. They get to know you as a person and genuinely care about your future.” The Bioinformatics courses gave Scavello the foundation to develop his research project in the biotechnology industry. And that’s just the beginning. “I expect my degree will lead to a salary increase and management opportunities in the field.”
