I’d like to take part in discovering some basic mechanisms of life, trying to understand it and admiring its whole complexity. That is why I am interested in molecular biology and the influence that single molecules exert on whole cells and organisms. Searching for single molecules and establishing their roles may also be the first step of developing future therapies that are long awaited.
