Scientists have a demanding job. The evolving projects, long hours, and challenges of navigating their growing careers can leave them feeling overwhelmed. But, being able to perform stem cell research can be a rewarding endeavour especially if you are passionate about knowing about body cells.

To thrive in academic research, it is important to read often and seriously. Any reading material you have access to beyond your immediate field of research can help you prepare for any future opportunity. Also, even if you have to experience failure along the way, don’t think it’s the end of the world for you. Expect to fail much more than you will succeed in this field. But, do not let your failures stop you from moving on.
