I’m citizen of Kazakhstan (a Central Asia developing country) from April in this year. I can speak in Kazakh, English and Chinese languages fluently, I have been working for the Immuno-bionechnology and immunochemistry lab of the National Center for Biotechnology of Republic of Kazakhstan for two years, for the requirement of my further work, I need to take training in developed country and study PhD if have opportunity. In this purpose I like your country, also I like the culture, working style of Japanese people and Japanese language, study in Japan is my wish from childhood. However I can not speak Japanese language but I can read and writ the Japanese letters those are the same with Chinese, so I believe that the Japanese language will not be so hard to learn for me. I had learned molecular immunology and worked with immunological techniques for several years and I’m very interesting in the molecular biology, particularly molecular principle in oncology now. I had read about signal transduction pathway and the role of cytokines in the cells. I have been attending a project at our center, the title of project is “Obtain monoclonal antibody to the breast cancer cell surface antigen”.
    May I apply for this program?
    Best regards,
    Dubeck
