You mentioned you are studying Medical Biochemistry?

Why?
I thought I could help people by coming up with new ways to treat cancer. I was interested in biology and how the body works.

Tell me about your research?
So I am studying the effects of garlic on the immune system, looking at it as a view towards cancer prevention. Some people can’t afford to take other medication as it is too expensive.

Are you near some sort of break through or conclusion?
I can see it is having an anti- inflammatory effect, I need to do more research.

Plans for when you complete your studies?
I am currently applying for consulting jobs. The study will be continued by the next students when I am no longer there.
