I am excited to announce that we have a special series coming to the blog soon: guest posts from my research students! This summer, I decided to encourage (read: require) my students to write a blog post describing some aspect of their research to the lay person. They have been using their downtime waiting for cells to grow, reactions to run, or data to be collected to brainstorm their ideas and write their posts. The first one will hit the press tomorrow! Come back to hear from them directly. I know I can’t wait!
