      I have become very interested recently in how water behaves inside a cell, and what influence it has in the function of DNA, proteins, etc. and even what role does it have in disease.

      I would definitely try to find new drugs that would allow us to treat cancer, and to understand how cancers are able to sometimes overcome these drugs (one new drug is one of my areas of research).
