Dear Sir,
I am a Sewnior Biochemistry student at the University of Oxford, UK.  I 
am planning to further continue the academic work to obtain Ph.D in US.
Although of biochemical background, my interests lies in neuroscience, 
especially in the subject of neurogenesis and plasticity in mammalian 
embryo, child and adult.  Preferably I would like to study signalling 
and cell cycle involved in neurogenesis, but I am not certain if there 
are other more exciting themes in the subject. My interests 
originates from possibilities of cure for spinal injuries such as  spina 

ALthough I am determined to enter an American graduate program, I have 
little informations concerning which course to choose.  Therefore I 
would like to ask you to advise me on the following points.
 1) Which universities have a strong research team(S) in the area of  
 2) Should I choose a Neuroscience program, or do Biology, 
    Developmental  Biology or Cell and Molecular biology suit me better? 

Thank you very much for your kind consideration.
						Sincerely yours,
