I´m interested in studying cell signalling pathways, cell cycle and apoptosis and cancer. I aim to obtain the necessary theoretical and practical skills which will enable me to be prepared to work in the research area that fascinates me the most and to contribute significantly to the development of science. I also hope to be able to join the collaborative efforts of the scientific community to produce various effective treatment against cancer. After finishing Ph.D., I would like to continue with post doctorate studies in the field of cancer research.
