From the PhD to a Fulfilling Career: My First Blog Post for Bio Careers

I am honored to have the privilege of contributing to the Bio Careers blog.  In my first post on Bio Careers, I want to start by introducing myself, and my career path. I received a PhD in genetics from Yale University in 2012, where I studied viral oncogenes and infectious entry of tumor viruses. I then conducted a brief postdoc at the National Cancer Institute.  While I love science, I knew in my second year at Yale that I did not want to pursue a career in academic research. Instead, I wanted to influence science more broadly.
