I'm writing a Statement of Purpose of the graduate application and want to express my interest in the particular fields:

I consider drug discovery and personalised healthcare as one of the most exciting applications of Bioinformatics.

Is this a correct way to say that? I'm concerned about using:

I consider ... as one of the most...

with multiple subjects(drug discovery, personalised healthcare).

Thanks!

  • In contexts like this, as only really works with certain specific verbs (including regard, recognise, rate, acknowledge,...). For consider, think, etc., we almost always use the "subjunctive" construction as per I know him to be honest. – FumbleFingers Jan 20 at 17:02

There are two aspects which you consider important, so the singular "one of the" won't do.

You could write

I consider drug discovery and personalised healthcare to be the most exciting applications of Bioinformatics.

Or less categorically:

I consider drug discovery and personalised healthcare to be among the most exciting applications of Bioinformatics.
