My name is Tang Bin. I'm an associate professor of Immunology at Guangdong Medical College in Zhanjiang. I am writing to you to explore the possibility of spending one to two years working in your laboratory as a visiting scholar.
Enclosed please find a complete CV of my education, training, researching , teaching experience, publications and references .
As you can see from my CV, I have had experience in clinical immunology and immunopharmacology. In the wake of these research, I am more interested in the following problems: 1) The clinical cytokines net. 2) The mechanism of cytokine and adhesive molecule as well as their mAbs in transducing singnals to lymphocytes or other cells. 3) The possibility of treating some diseases via regulating cytokine or adhesive molecule gene transcription and expression by biological response modifiers. I am eager to do something in these fields under your guidance. I am confident that I can do it better if you offer me this opportunity.
I am confident of my ability to make a contribution, however small, to your ongoing research projects. My College has granted me an extended leave of absence, which enables me to obtain research experience and interaction abroad.I wish I could find words to express the importance of an appointment as a visiting scholar, for I know how I could learn, and how much China could gain from my working under your guidance. Please tell me whether or not you are in a position to offer me this opportunity. If there is trouble to offer me any financial support, I can afford the cost of living during my working in your laboratory by myself.
I hope all the above will give you a better idea of my background, and bring me a good luck. If you need any other additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
