      1) Coding! I enjoy coding, extracting genetic information and doing some calculations related to genes.
      2) General science discussions. Every Friday we get together with my labmates and discuss science news.

      I like find out new things. Literally no one knows the answers to the questions I’m trying to answer. We don’t even know if there IS an answer. That’s pretty cool.

      I like to see patients after we’ve helped them- it makes all the hard work worth it! I also love coding- I love writing computer software. It’s like I’m making something out of nothing and then I get to give that software to the world to try and help find cures for their cancers!

      I like that all my days are different! I like to teach neuroscience to college students and I like conducting my research, which is different all the time. Sometimes I am working in the lab and sometimes I am writing, reading, giving talks, or analyzing data. Everyday is different and exciting.
