Dear Sir/Miss My passion for studying Allergies stems from my especial interest in food allergies. I spent my final year of BSc honors working in the Immunology department, supporting patients and families suffering from various allergies and immunological disorders. This experience highlighted to me the importance of allergies management, which increased my desire to contribute to this field.I am applying for a place at Southampton University as I truly believe this curriculum is the best of its kind, blend of a unique learning, research projects with an amazing hands-on training opportunity in all core areas of allergy.
It will broaden my knowledge of allergies and understanding of the topic as a whole. This will serve a solid foundation for my future research degree. I have found Immunology, as an incredibly exciting field. Investigating the underlying details of allergies is essential to successfully cure it. While studying immunology as a major subject I have been introduced and practically trained in Basic and Clinical Immunology. I have sufficient skills to plan and carry out experiments.
Whilst at University I was fortunate enough to do my clinical rotation at Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. This three year role was invaluable in showing me the importance of teamwork and patient care. This has helped me to understand other aspects of laboratory medicine, as well as giving me the chance to utilize some of the scientific knowledge that I learnt from my degree. I have also been fortunate enough to observe consultant Immunologists during clinics. As part of my final year dissertation I worked on Anti – Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies diagnostic role in Wheat Allergy patients. tTg antibodies detection have a major therapeutic benefit.
My research work motivates me to further study allergies.I am expecting to attain a high 2.1 or first class BSc honors degree and I believe the knowledge and skills gained during this time will prove my academic ability to study at this levelI am inspired by the groundbreaking research work at Southampton hospital in asthma and allergy Getting a chance to collaborate with highly motivated people under the guidance of leading experts will help me to challenge my traditional thinking. I would be enthusiastic to interact with internationally renowned specialists. Studying in a different country, surrounded by people with diverse cultures will push me out of my comfort zone and allow me to learn new things. I believe that the knowledge gained from this school will meet my professional needs and also make me a better, well rounded person. I wanted to dedicate my life to studying allergic disorders, asthma, and immune defectsIt will be my pleasure to get selected for a scholarship as I am not capable to finance my participation on my own.
I hope you will find consider my application favorably.If given the scholarship, I would genuinely make the best use of the facilities the university has put together for this program. Moreover, I am confident that after acquiring an effective learning I will be able to serve scientific community in future by generating novel ideas.I look forward to hearing from you.Sincerely,Iqra Nadeem
