Why I became a researcher: 

The field of Virology interested me because of the molecular biology studies, which can be carried out using the viruses as models. In addition, the way viruses cause diseases and the reaction of the host to virus infection, is of great importance to human beings and animals. Development of drugs active against viruses and viral vaccines are the main subjects and goals of my research and teaching.
