Professional and Personal Interests: 

The doctoral program gives me the possibility to work at the border on molecular biology and medicine which fascinates me. Stem cell research is at the developing edge of modern science and medicine and also exciting for me. In the future, I would like to concentrate on researching in this field and in this way; I would take up the social responsibility by aiding research and education in the fields of bio-engineering and medicine. My hobbies include painting, music, hiking and volley ball.
