Recommondation
Ms. Payal Singla has an excellent record throughout her academic carrier. She is a talented, modest young woman, possessing very pleasing manners. She had cordial working relationships with her colleagues/seniors and has a very amiable disposition. In the course of our interactions, I observed that Ms. Singla is a highly courteous, hardworking and disciplined student. To the best of my knowledge She bears a good moral character and has all the desirable qualities for growing into a good researcher/scientist. I strongly recommend her candidature for a suitable position to gain further experience in research of her interest. &#rl;&#nl;

Question 1
What is it about research as a career that interests you the most? In which subject area(s) would you like to pursue research? What led you to choose this area of research?

Response to Question 1
In research I can follow the path of my thoughts and imagination, to discover the novel solutions and work on my innovative ideas that can benefit the whole world. A research career can give me a chance to study the diseases that are fatal and to find a cure. I want to pursue research in immunology against the viral diseases, especially those viruses that targets immune cells, such as HIV. The ideal cure or vaccine for HIV is still not found and the mechanism followed by HIV to invade the immune cells and degrade the immunity, recombination and mutations and its latency that hinders the efficacy of the treatment. I want to play my part in decoding the mystery HIV cure and unravel the path to potential treatment of HIV.

Question 2
Describe any project, or laboratory experiment, or research-oriented training programme that you have been involved in. Please highlight the aspects that you particularly enjoyed.

Response to Question 2
My knowledge and skills in the research areas are accelerated by the accomplishment of the dissertation project during the M.Sc. final semester, at the DNA Replication and Cell Cycle Laboratory, National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi. My work on “Investigating the role of long non-coding RNA ‘DRCCL’ in osteosarcoma carcinogenesis" expanded my knowledge in the molecular mechanism for the maintenance and regulation of cell cycle, causes which leads to cancer and other diseases also. I gained the knowledge of animal and cancerous cell culture, molecular cloning of the gene of interest, genetic expression analysis using RT-PCR, lentiviral vector construction and gene knockdown studies in the cancerous cell line. While working in NII, I am fascinated by the enigma of the diversified immune system on viral infection. My interest in immunology and virology is intensified and directed to the study of function and interactions of lncRNA with various molecules in immune cells, especially during viral infection. From then I want to be the element of innovation in this field.

Question 3
State the reasons on why you want to opt for JNCASR for your advanced research / academic studies.

Response to Question 3
JNCASR is an eminent institute supporting high-quality research in interdisciplinary and areas related to biosciences. Opportunities and facilities provided by the JNCASR to compete with the world led me to opt for JNCASR. the research areas offered by JNCASR best fits for me to follow my research interest.

Declaration
I declare that all the information and entries of marks are correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. If admitted, I shall obey all the rules and regulations of the Centre.
