Why this profession?

I have been a medical student at the University of Kiel since 2010. I could not imagine learning anything other than the mechanisms of life, diseases and their cur. During the last few years I was able to acquire a basic knowledge of cancer characteristics, development, and demanding therapy. This insufficiently explored disease took hold of me and I became eager for a deeper understanding of its molecular mechanisms. In order to combine my interest in this field of medicine with my wish to contribute towards  scientific progress, I decided to undertake approach a doctoral thesis in Prof. H. Schäfer´s study group at the Laboratory for Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology in 2014.
