The Midlands Integrative Bioscience Training Partnerships Program At The University Of Leicester
I am particularly interested in pursuing a research career in neuroscience, but I am deeply drawn in undertaking the Midlands Integrative Bioscience Training Partnerships program at the University of Leicester due to its emphasise on integrating different concepts and methods from other disciples via quantitative and experimental approach.
Since my first encounter with science and knowledge, as a young child, I cultivated and spent my teenage years educating and broadening my intellect on different fields from Elizabethan literature to astronomy, even building my own small home-made telescope!
