I am passionate about understanding the molecular basis of reactions and processes. Particularly, I find molecular oncology and virology very engaging where I already gathered experience during my studies and lab work. Beyond that, there is a broad range of topics within the field of molecular biology which I am looking forward to explore during this program.
