Determination To Overcome Fear

Rosemay is right: the "Early Career seminars" (Sunday) were great! Often brought with humor, but also realism, the talks were very informative for new PIs. Sure, becoming a new PI can certainly look scary... but what a great challenge! It was also great to get to talk "more freely" with the speakers at the "Networking Session". My personal take-home message from yesterday: To be a new PI, you need to be extremely determined, and work HARD!

The meeting is just getting started: don't be timid! Overcome your fear, and talk to people! Network network network! Learn from others, from their experience as scientists AND mentors.
