Wow. Two months since I've written here. That isn't to say that I haven't been writing, a lot. Just not here.
It was a good end of the semester.
I really enjoyed my first semester teaching, despite hiccups here and there (like not realizing that one version of the final exam mysteriously was missing an image, even though both versions were submitted in the same format).
Research is going well - I'll be heading to SMBE to present a talk on some new research from the lab, and Pooja Narang, a postdoctoral scholar working with me was chosen for an SMBE travel award to present new data that we've been working on together.
I've also submitted a some grants, big and small, with varying levels of success (still waiting to hear about the big one).
Overall, it's been a great first year, but nothing, nothing like a postdoc. :)
