Please, I need a hand with my letter of motivation to apply for a Ph D Program. Could you help me to correct orthography and other things you think it could sound better? Thank you!!__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Letter of motivation:

I am writing to express my great interest in applying for the preparatory- (PhD) program in the X Institute in Berlin.

I studied microbiology at the University of R in City, Land, from 1997 to 2002, where I obtained a Bachelor degree. During my studies, I was always a curious and research-active student, since I knew that to pursue a scientific career, one most begin early. Therefore, I tried to research in different areas like parasitology, in which I could take part of an research project at the Tropical Parasitology and Microbiology Research Center that wanted to apply the PCR technique to detect infective forms of Toxoplasma gondii in pork for human consumption.

After finishing my studies, I worked for a while in the quality-control field. During this time, I learn a lot of my self and of working with people of different disciplines, who teach me the discipline and organisation of a company. I also strengthen my conviction of being a scientist.

For that reason, I came to Germany, to learn state-of-the-art techniques from highly qualifying scientists and to have an important experience of studying abroad. Currently, I study Sciences at the University of ER, and complementary to my subjects, I have attended lectures and practical courses like biochemistry, immunology, virology, human genetics and signal transduction.

This program is one of the few that offers me the opportunity to reach a Ph. D degree without a prior master degree through a preparatory program. I am prepared intellectually to participate in this program, and I am eager to learn, to contribute and to complement my knowledge with different disciplines, and the knowledge of recognized scientists that collaborate to this program.

The program offers an exciting interdisciplinary scenario, in which I could have the opportunity to study what I pursue as scientist: to understand the interplay between pathogens and hosts, to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of this interaction and its influence in the host signalling pathways.

I would be grateful if you consider me for the preparatory program as a high-recommended candidate.
See what you think of these revisions, Andrea Co. (Reminder: type two spaces after a period and after a colon.)

I would be grateful for your consideration of my candidacy for this preparatory program.
Thanks a lot for your revision davkett!!!
