The intricacies of a signaling pathway and the specific response elicited to the signal amaze me immensely. It has the organization and synchrony of an ants trail foraging for food. My goal is to understand such molecular level functioning in context to the macroscopic phenomenon of life. My research interests lies in cell molecular biology, immunology and the fields, I am yet to experience that will help me achieve my goal.
