      I can not really choose one topic…. this is the good thing about science, you do not need to study only one thing, you can change if you want to.

      So far I have looked at heart diseases, muscular disorders and pain research… but for example my final year project at university was related to Polydactyly (having more than 5 fingers on your hand)…
      ahhh, I loved them all and still find them all very interesting…. I like to have different choices and opportunities- keeping my grey cells happy!!

      Like Connie has said, there are so many different topics to research it is difficult to choose just one. It is also important in our job to keep reading and learning about different research topics in case someone else has discovered something that might help us in our research!

      I would say that whilst I agree with Connie and Gemma that I don’t have one favourite topic, I would say that I have a favourite way of doing things. I love microscopy. So I like work were people use microscopy and make pretty pictures.

      My favourite area is cancer research, which is a very broad research area which I like because there is lots I can learn about.
