A day in the life: July 4, 2011

In research log on July 4, 2011 at 12:07 pm

From time to time, I will give a glimpse into the “glamorous” life of a research associate and talk about what I’m doing in the lab on a particular day. These entries I will call “A Day in the Life…”

Ah, the 4th of July, an official university holiday, yet as I walk down the hallway there are several people working in their respective labs. Me? I’m just here for a couple of hours to pour a few gels so I can hit the ground running tomorrow morning. While I’m not sure about my fellow lab rats and I certainly can’t speak for other branches of science,   sometimes  in biological research you have to come to the lab over weekends or holidays because of ongoing experiments — sometimes it’s for a few minutes, sometimes it’s for the entire day. Such is the way of things in research — it waits for no one.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!
