Starting a Lab

February 22, 2016

It has been pretty busy since I started here, but I enjoy my new role (so far).

 In Japan, the fiscal year starts in April and ends in March, and our budget is not really flexible. Therefore, I had to use my startup money by early February, and suddenly I cannot purchase anything with that money. I really appreciate private grants free from this restriction that allow me to keep going in February and March.

 While preparing for experiments in the lab, I am reading books for junior PIs. To manage a lab, to publish, to get funded, and to do good science seem to be an overwhelmingly difficult task, but that is what I have to do now. I appreciate and respect my mentors more now. The books, "At the Helm" and "LAB DYNAMICS" are the graduation gifts from Gladstone Institutes. Let' see where these books lead me.
