Recruits of the Day #2138

Shirley and Jenny are two of our lab’s newest research assistants, and for the past few weeks I’ve been training them to do the work that’s been my specialty here. It feels a bit strange that I was the only one who knew how to do this particular work – like I’ve been holding a torch to keep the room lit, and the flame needs to be spread before I move on.

(That’s a slight dramatization – the lab folk are brilliant and would surely work things out on their own if they needed to.)

It’s been nice working with these two, and I hope their burgeoning careers in neuroscience are full of insight and inspiration.
