Dear Sir or Madam:
I am currently studying PhD Degree Program in Ilia State University, specialty “Molecular Neuroscience”. During my prior studies as Master student in Saint Andrew Georgian University, I have found out, that I would like to specialize in microscopic studies. Now, in my PhD research, I investigate the short- and long-term effect of Toluene (toxic inhalant) chronic exposure on the structure of brain regions involved in different types of memory in adolescent and adult rats. In morphological part of research I use various approaches of atomic force microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and Golgi impregnation technique, method, which detects the soma along with entire dendritic arbors and dendritic spines of the neuron. So, I am focused on brain cells – neuron and glia.
Finally: I will be especially glad to work in the Group with other students on original project. I will do my best for this project, using my knowledge and experience. And certainly Besides my special interests, I would be particularly excited to gain knowledge of absolutely new for me, approaches of microscopy research. So, during two weeks of the Courses, I expect to learn as much as possible.
, I hope for my great enthusiasm and curiosity.
I am sure that this course would strongly enrich my future studies and help me in my PhD research. Moreover, I am confident, that this new knowledge would be extremely exciting and valuable not only for my PhD studies but also for general development.
Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.
I know, this school is different profile, but I thought will use the stud in the future
With great respect,
PhD student, Ilia State University,
I ask for the Travel Grant (Including Registration Fees) to cover all of the cost.Taking this grant is very important for me because I am from developing country, from Georgia.
