Desiring to cure as many patients as possible through study of oral cancer

I am studying oral cancer. There are generally three main cancer treatments: surgery, chemical therapy, and radiation therapy where the size and the malignancy of the tumor are firstly examined. My study of oral cancer is characterized with directly examining cancer cells to identify their types and characters to find efficiency of a new drug to be used against them. What I always keep telling myself in mind is that I am doing my study for patients. Although my study days tend to be full of trials and errors often without getting expected results, my dream is that one day I will be able to obtain results useful for patients all over the world.
