The arena of cellular signaling and the regulation of gene expression fascinate me. It is interesting to know that simple small molecules participate in diverse functions ranging from cell survival to cell death and thus integrate the external signals with the internal signal transduction pathway that ultimately controls the gene expression profile. Also intriguing is the cross talk between different signaling pathways. Through this program I would like to gain experience in theoretical and experimental application to develop a better understanding of the field of biology.
