In the Molecular Biology program I hope to increase my knowledge of practical and theoretical aspects of molecular biology. My particular interest lies in molecular oncology, immunology and stem cell biology. I am looking forward to gaining an insight into different research areas to help me decide which scientific field I want to specialize in.
