Dear Dr. Cruz,
I’m David Wu and I’m another year biology major at UVa. Within my opening and upper-level coursework, I’ve developed a love for science and am very thinking about going after independent research being an undergraduate. A comprehensive research experience will greatly assist me to consolidate my future career choice.
I’m personally greatly thinking about the molecular biology of stem cells. Lately I just read your 2011 paper around the role of microRNAs within the differentiation of muscle stem cells and grew to become fascinated with your projects. Particularly, I discovered it amazing that microRNAs can transform the fate of the cell in this profound way. If at all possible, I would like to begin a lengthy-term project inside your lab beginning this summer time.
Will you be open to meet sometime now to go over your quest? I’d also gladly volunteer inside your lab for any couple of days before we invest in anything to find out if this is an excellent match. My transcript and resume are attached in situation you have an interest. I expect to talking with you!
