I love science. Really.
But after working 3 years in a biochemistry and molecular biology research lab, I was very nearly ready to leave science behind.
I find the daily grind of research to be mind numbing. You worry about the next experiment, you watch projects be discarded, you feed your cells, you run your gels, and after a while, you forget the “wow” factor. Most people don’t go into science because they love PCRs and Western blots – They go into science because they want to know how the world works, because they are amazed by the nature of life, because they are inspired to constantly learn new things… At least that’s why I went into science!
With that in mind, this blog is most definitely not a recap of biological experimental data reduced to obscure statistics nor a forum for posting the latest paper arguing the nature of cancer stem cells.
This blog is for sharing stories in science. Thanks for reading!
