How I Got Into Science
I once worked at a neuroscience lab as a lab technician. At first, I was merely a tech support. My main responsibilities included writing scripts for data analysis and hardware maintenance. As I got more involved, I became more and more interested in doing actual research. Therefore, I decided to pursue a Ph.D. degree. When I searched for possible research directions, I didn’t confine my search to neuroscience but looked for broader topics in biology. Eventually, I landed in molecular biology.
