TOP > Message > Realizing your vision

2007.09.10
I wrote last time about the importance of having a vision that is not restricted to the immediate purview of your own research, and that by the practice of describing your vision, your horizon and understanding as a researcher would expand.
My emphasis was on having a vision, but needless to say a researcher has to produce results, as he/she will be judged by the results. Once you have the direction you want to pursue with your research theme, and have a vision that helps you not to be pegged down within the confine of your research ideas, you have to start working towards producing results. The type of guidance a researcher receives in addition to the sum total of the researcher's ability comes into play here.
I believe the hallmark of a great lab is that lab members outgrow and excel their boss. Such a lab is worthwhile maintaining and it is my vision to create such a lab.
