Dear Committee Members,
I would like to apply for the Master course of
Molecular Biology in Debrecen University as I wish to pursue a career in
Biomedicine, specializing in Stem cell research, and establish myself as an
expert in the field which is currently being invested in Vietnam.
As a head of cell culture group in the collaborative
projects of Hue Stem cell laboratory and Hue Central Hospital in Vietnam, I
witnessed the daily painfulness of chronic kidney patients as well as the considerable
hospital fees during the rest of their lifes. The number of these patients are
increasing monthly while traditional treatments fail to treat this disease
entirely. Our projects somewhat bring the hope for these patients, which fascinates
other hospital’s departments accelerate stem cell research and application. To
engage deeper in these projects and help my local people, I desire to explore
this prospect science in my future study.
To follow my desire, I have a long preparation to
acquire standard knowledge and fundamental skills for higher study. I have
followed biomedical research for four years with a Ph.D. who worked at Inserm
Institute in Paris, France. Thanks to her direction, I attain the scientific
mindset and learn how to organize standard research. I am confident that I
possess the ability to work independently and to cooperate with the research
teams efficiently, which can be illustrated by our student project in a
biomedical competition. Although it is the first time I participated in student
research, our idea is a big challenge when inventing the human blood cells
manufacturing system. We attempted to grasp it quickly from numerous related
papers as well as worked with members effectively. Eventually, our idea was
highly appreciated and we received opportunities to intern in a qualified stem
cell laboratory in Vietnam.
Unfortunately, biomedicine – in particular, stem cell
research, is still a cutting-edge discipline with limited human resources in
Vietnam. Thus, by acquiring knowledge and skills from overseas institutions, I
hope I can develop myself professionally in this field to contribute to the
development of Vietnam upon return. Debrecen University, an advanced promise
condition for biomedical research, will enable me to not only make great leaps
forward in knowledge but also to learn new and innovative research methods. The
program’s research-orientation will still help me improve my critical thinking,
writing and professional skills which are necessary for Ph.D. challenges. Upon
completion of this program, I intend to undertake doctoral studies before
returning to Vietnam for research and application at Hue Central Hospital. I
believe that the prestigious university like Debrecen would hone my knowledge
and skills at this hospital.
Moreover, international friendship at the university
will be valuable to the collaboration between Vietnam and other countries.
Having participated in international school and courses, I am positive that I
will be able to get along well and learn from my peers and classmates, and in
turn, contribute positively to the course with my knowledge and sociable
For all the reasons above, I firmly believe I am a
prospective candidate for Debrecen University and its scholarship. With my
passion and motivation, this program will grant a valuable platform for me to
pursue my biomedical dream.
