SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS
I find many cellular and molecular processes fascinating, such as signal transduction, the molecular basis of diseases, proliferation and apoptosis and RNA functions. I feel quite astonished by the depths of the evolving biosciences, and undecided about where to focus my further interests. Many of nature's riddles are still unsolved and so much is still waiting to be unveiled. Through the Molecular Biology program I wish to deepen and broaden my theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the diverse fields of molecular biology and to explore areas of biosciences which are new to me such as developmental and stem cell biology. During the program I hope to gain an insight into different promising research areas, while meeting colleagues from different scientific and cultural backgrounds.
