Dear Sir/Miss My passion for studying Allergies stems from myespecial interest in food allergies.
I spent my final year of BSc honors workingin the Immunology department, supporting patients and families suffering fromvarious allergies and immunological disorders. This experience highlighted to methe importance of allergies management, which increased my desire to contributeto this field.I am applying for a place at Southampton Universityas I truly believe this curriculum is the best of its kind, blend of a uniquelearning, research projects with an amazing hands-on training opportunity in all core areas of allergy.
It will broaden myknowledge of allergies and understanding of the topic as a whole. This willserve a solid foundation for my future research degree. I have foundImmunology, as an incredibly exciting field.Investigating the underlying details of allergies is essential to successfullycure it. While studying immunology as a major subject I have been introducedand practically trained in Basic and Clinical Immunology.
I have sufficientskills to plan and carry out experiments. Whilst at University I wasfortunate enough to do my clinical rotation at Armed Forces Institute ofPathology. This three year role was invaluable in showing me the importance ofteamwork and patient care. This has helped me to understand other aspects oflaboratory medicine, as well as giving me the chance to utilize some of thescientific knowledge that I learnt from my degree. I have also been fortunateenough to observe consultant Immunologists during clinics. As part of my final year dissertation I worked on Anti – Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodiesdiagnostic role in Wheat Allergy patients.
tTg antibodies detection have amajor therapeutic benefit. My research work motivates me to further studyallergies.I am expecting toattain a high 2.1 or first class BSc honors degreeand 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 atSouthampton hospital in asthma and allergy Getting a chance to collaborate with highlymotivated people under the guidance of leading experts will help me to challengemy traditional thinking. I would be enthusiastic to interact with internationally renownedspecialists. Studying in a different country, surrounded by people withdiverse cultures will push me out of my comfort zone and allow me to learn newthings.
I believe that the knowledge gained from this school will meet my professionalneeds 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 ascholarship as I am not capable to finance my participation on my own. I hopeyou will find consider my application favorably.If given the scholarship, I would genuinely make thebest 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 toserve scientific community in future by generating novel ideas.I look forward to hearing from you.Sincerely,Iqra Nadeem
