OccupyBaltimore Congrats to my grad student Brandie Cross , for being featured in the Scientific American . Brandie works tirelessly at the medical tent downtown, while chasing down calcium dynamics in breast cancer cells in her day ‘job’ in my lab.
It is a sad fact that a Ph.D. in biomedical research does not guarantee a job..in fact, only 7% of postdoctoral fellows in my field end up in academia (which is often their first choice). For the record, I’m pretty sure that Brandie will get a job! As long as she continues to OccupyScience 🙂
