My particular interests are in the field of molecular signaling pathways and mechanisms in the context of drug treatment of human diseases. I also find the area of molecular genetics of carcinogenesis a very promising area and particularly the various interaction between oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes, the pathways leading to malignancy. I am eager to improve my practical and theoretical skills in immunology too, since it is an essential and challenging field of study and research.
