I’m excited to announce that our paper finally came out! This was my first corresponding author paper and also my first decision to publish in an open source journal (meaning you should be able to read it for free). This work is the culmination of what I’ve been doing for the past 2 years or so at PHRI as an independent researcher. The patent for it is submitted as well. Things have changed a lot for me very recently and left me wondering where to go with my career. I’m considering branching out on my own and sending applications for PI positions to various places. I’ll keep you all posted on how that process goes as well.
