Over the years of editing this newsletter, I have noticed that some topics garner more interest than others. Our “tough topics” theme appears to be one such area. Thanks to the NICHD fellows who volunteered to explore difficult issues in biomedical research, this theme will stretch beyond our planned two-part series into a third issue next month.
For Part II of our “tough topics” series, postbac Audrey Lee talks about the difficult skill of selling your work without overstretching the implications of your findings. In her interview with NICHD Principal Investigator Dr. Henry Levin, we learn about striking this tricky balance.
For NICHD fellows who aren’t quite at the publication phase, graduate student Allison Dennis offers a personal narrative about her decision to start a new project already two years into her degree program. I think we can all relate to her experience on some level.
We’re in a for a busy few months with plenty of opportunities and events; just take a look at the “Rep Report,” March Announcements, and several valuable activities sponsored by the central Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE).
I’ll stop here so you can dig in to this great issue!
