Can I improve the structure of this question?

See example:

To further develop my research skills and also my interest and work in protein crystallization, I participated in the MIT Summer Research Program in 2011.

How about:

 

To develop my research skills further, as well as my interest and work in protein crystallization, I participated in the MIT Summer Research Program in 2011.

 

You could also switch the order of the clauses:

 

I participated in the MIT Summer Research Program in 2011 to develop my research skills and further my interest and work in protein crystallization.
