"There have always been highly capable women wanting to be scientists." Rita Colwell, PhD

Hello


Just a passionate 27 year old starting her PhD in Clinical Translational Science. Not sure what that is?  With this blog I aim to explore the growing fields of translational science and research and how I plan to use them for the study of the eye. I will also be talking about tips and tricks for PhD applications, my path to this career, why we need more women to join our field, and showcase guest blogger voices!
