During my bachelor studies in Moscow State University I have acquired theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of molecular cell biology, biochemistry and immunology. So far, my scientific interests have been mainly focused on the investigation of the adaptive immunity system. However, I have always been eager to try myself in various other fields of fundamental science. This is why I have chosen this program. I sincerely believe that participation in this Molecular Biology Program will provide a strong basis for my scientific path as well as it will help me to find an exciting project for my future Master and PhD thesis.
