My major research interests include biomedical and applied biological research as well as biochemistry. I am very keen to gain a deeper insight into the interaction of molecular biological and biochemical processes and the relation to the manifestation of diseases. Through this program I hope to deepen and broaden my theoretical and practical knowledge in the different fields of molecular biology.
