Still trying to get into a lab, but there might be an end in sight! Two professors have responded to my inquiries and would like to meet me to talk about opportunities in their labs. Yay! I will be meeting with Dave Valentine next week sometime and hopefully Joel Rothman the week after. Dave Valentine is researching hydrocarbon seeps in the ocean and microbes that break down some of these hydrocarbons. Joel Rothman is researching embryonic differentiation in C. elegans. All I can say is that if I do end up getting into a lab for next quarter I am going to have my work cut out for me. It is going to be a tough ten weeks. I just hope that the research I get into is motivating and that I have a little free time to myself on weekends or something!
