In a few years, I see myself teaching literature and going into editing or publishing poetry. PhD program offered by your Institution would be valuable to me in several ways. First, your teaching assistantship program would provide me with the practical teaching experience I am eager to acquire. Further, earning a . in Linguistics & English Language would support my other two career goals by adding to my skills, both critical and creative, in working with language. Ultimately, however, I see the . as an end in itself, as well as a professional milestone; I enjoy studying literature for its own sake and would like to continue my studies on the level demanded by the . program.
When the complement system is activated, more than 30 different proteins interact in a highly intricate cascade-like manner. Professor Piet Gros has succeeded in producing crystals from many complement proteins and determining their three-dimensional structures. He has also studied the complicated protein complexes formed by these proteins and succeeded in clarifying their three-dimensional structures. Through his research, Piet Gros has been able to describe in detail the molecular mechanisms that lead to the activation of the complement system and which explain this protein system’s effects on the immune system.
