It's been a while since I posted here, so I'll reintroduce myself again since I only just returned to spark after a multi-year hiatus.

I'm a PhD student in evolutionary biology. Stress and lack of time play a huge role into why I don't take good enough care of myself -- but I am here to change that. I want to live healthier and feel better. I know my science will benefit from that, too!

I have a long way to go... but if I figure I can commit to a PhD, I oughtta be able to do this too, right? ;)

Hello, I'm not sure how active this group is, but I thought I would introduce myself. Feel free, anyone, to friend me!

I received my BS in cell and structural biology from UIUC and PhD in Tumor Biology. My dissertation focused on social isolation stress, obesity, and breast cancer risk in mice.

Since then I have been an Adjunct Professor at couple of Universities for a few years. I am currently applying for fully time jobs (of which there are few despite living in a large metropolitan area) or finding a different career path.

I have a BS in chemistry. Worked in industry for awhile and then decided to go back to school and become a teacher. I currently teach high school chemistry....regular, honors, and AP. It's such a challenging job and I put in so many more hours that I ever did in industry. At the same time, it's also super rewarding.

I am a behavior analyst, working in the field of applied behavior analysis with my focus being on providing intensive behavioral therapy to children with autism. I'm fascinated by the science of behavior and hoping I can apply some of the principles to my own journey. Lol

I don't have to get there fast... I just have to keep reaching for my goals, and keep moving towards them. Slow and steady wins the race!

Happy New Year Team Members!

I am a research scientist in Chemistry and Biophysics. During the breaks from my experiments and classes I run to the gym to take aerobics and weight training classes. I am pretty busy and my only free time is dedicated to fitness classes, reading, and spending time with my cats. I hope 2016 will represent a year of accomplishments to everyone.

Hi,
My Master's degree is in Botany and Wetland Ecology, but right now I'm working in a Marine Science department. I actually seriously considered Marine Science instead of Botany when I was starting grad school. My profile pic is me holding a crab's molted exoskeleton, completely intact, found on the beach in Cozumel.

I'm not a scientist yet (Right now, a cashier), but I want to get a BAS in Medical Laboratory Scientist!

EDIT: Found out that I need to be "accepted" into the Medical Laboratory Technician program before I can go into Medical Laboratory Scientist. They only accept 12 students a year. There are prerequisites I need to satisfy to even be considered. I already see that I will not be able to get all the classes I need by Spring of 2015, but that is okay. I will get everything I need done and more to be considered for the Spring of 2016. Wish me luck!

My degree is in Microbiology and grad degree in Food Science / Analytical Chemistry
My career has allowed me to partake in Microbiology and then develop chemicals related to agriculture and food... so I'm kind of a chemical engineer now i guess? Food Science is a wonderful discipline if anyone is looking for ideas for direction!

This is my year, as everything else has fallen into place.
