WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LAB AND WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACE?
There is always a new challenge, a new question to answer, a newly published piece of MS research to read. Scientists rarely have time to get bored with their job because each week is different to the last. I think that one of the greatest challenges that exists in Australia is maintaining support for ‘discovery’ research. Not all projects have an immediate outcome for society, but instead take years to fully develop. It’s important to keep supporting discovery research because it will eventually provide a big impact on our health care system.
