My decision to pursue postgraduate studies has been motivated by my eventual aim of contributing to the research in the field of developmental biology. I am highly interested in studying the diverse development processes and their molecular and evolutionary basis. The basic question how an embryo is generated from a single cell intrigues me. I feel that through this program my entire academic needs will be fulfilled and I will move closer to achieving my research goals.
