Cell Biologist Dr. Henry Sun gave tips to UC Davis Grad Students about Survival Skills for Young Investigators

Monday, June 18, 2012

World-renowned cell biologist and former UCD Ph.D. student Dr. Henry Sun gave a workshop to graduate students on June 16 on how to be successful in doing research. He did this during a visit in 2000 that was a smashing suceess and got rave reviews from the students and faculty in attendance. That experience inspired him to develop his ideas more fornally, leading to a Nature article and development of a workship. 

 

This year, the workshop was again very well-received and was attended by 100 people comprised mostly of graduate students, but postdoctoral scholars, faculty and staff were also in attendance. The one-day workshop covered topics including experimental design, scientific writing, grant writing and oral presentation.
