I had an incredibly helpful conversation with one of the post docs, Andrea, in the lab yesterday. She gave me some amazing tips about how to pick a grad school and what to look for. Then today I had another conversation with a different post doc, Jacob, who is interested in teaching as well and he was just as helpful! Dr. Cech's lab is full of people with great advice to pass along. Elaine takes the time to super explain the project I'm working on and answer any questions I have about the big picture. Art is my advisor in the lab and I'm grateful that he lets me follow him around and learn from his every move.
He gave me a paper to read that further explains the project I'm working on. It's so cool to see how Dr. Cech looks at the whole picture of a project and the connection it makes to society. I can't write about it on here but I'm so excited about how everything can come together!
The other benefit to being here is that there is an awesome group of people in the church for me to learn from. Suzanne Beaty is in the north region and will be leading our d group on sunday mornings, Barri Lusk has walked me through so much of what is going on in Denver/ Boulder right now and I don't think I'd get anywhere without Miyoko Kim this summer. I'm really looking forward to getting to know all these women and so many more people this summer!
I'm off to eat now but will be sleeping in tomorrow because I don't have to get up at 7 to go to lab! Yay Saturday!
