Sciency New Year Resolutions

As we start the New Year, many of us will make resolutions to improve our lifestyles or ourselves.  To many in the Washington University science community, this is an opportune time to reflect on things at work we thought were unsatisfactory last year and resolve to do better in 2012.  These are science-related resolutions we have made and will hopefully keep.

Even when he doesn't ask for updates, keep my boss informed of any progress or technical issues with my research at least once a week.
-Peggy Ni, Ph.D. student in Immunology

Graduate in 12 months.
-Ben Xu, Ph.D. student in Immunology

Write for at least 15-30 minutes each day, first thing in the morning when I get into work.
-Nick Manieri, Ph.D. student in Immunology
Read a paper a day.
-Stephanie Rodriguez, Ph.D. student in Immunology

Publish my work and graduate.  Become more knowledgeable about how science is regulated on a national level, from funding and grants to education standards and health policy.
-Jen Lynch, Ph.D. student in Immunology

Get back into the lab [after the holiday break] and get the ball rolling.
-Brandon Holmes, M.D./Ph.D. student in Neurosciences

Stay more organized and efficient, so that we can continue to grow YSP by providing scientific experiences to the students/teachers of the St. Louis community.
