I joined a lab!

May 11, I finally came to my decision, and joined the Kim lab. I’m pretty excited about it. Even though it is a little scary to join a brand-new lab, I think the research is facinating and it will really allow me to grow intellectually in grad school. I also feel entirely okay saying, “I am confused and do not understand” without being thought of as stupid. That counts for a lot.

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.

    hmmm– i commented on this the other day– it must not have liked my other identity– hehe

    anyways– i went to comment on your chocolate thingy and i saw it didnt process this one… i had made a blogger identity after i did the other identity— but anyways.

    so, is the lab the worm lab, or is this one of the labs (out of three i think you said?) that you have to do? if so– what are you doing?

    It’s not the worm lab, it’s the bioinformatics lab. I’ll tell you all about it when I come home.
