I am interested in molecular biology because you get to the bottom of life itself by exploring the way how living organisms work. Especially human biology and the application of the knowledge on this field to drug design and therapy are fascinating me. During the last year I encountered tumor biology for the first time and I find this particularly interesting. However, I would like to extend my knowledge in various fields of molecular biology before specialization. I look forward to learning many new techniques and acquiring new skills.
