The interplay between the fields of genetics and immunology has always intrigued me. I would thus like to gain a deeper insight into the field of immunogenetics and study the immune mediated diseases having a genetic disposition. I would however proceed with an open mind and would love to explore the various aspects of molecular biology aiming to further improve my understanding of this broad and fascinating field.
