While education and experience are critical for the working scientist, there is another factor that makes all the difference in the lab: happy people are more productive. Yours is a serious mission, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy carrying out that mission.

Your well-being impacts both your work and your career. Each episode of The Happy Scientist dials in on hands-on, actionable steps you can take to make sure you stay happy, focused, and satisfied in the lab. Join us to experience a more fulfilling career in bioscience.
