Getting the Lab off the Ground

Post date: Jul 15, 2011 11:42:04 PM

So the lab is now over one year old and finally getting going. I've had a number of people tell me that if you are going by six months and feel productive by one year you are doing good. Based on that I'm a bit behind as I only now feel like the lab is starting to really make progress, so that is a bit past the one year mark. But I really only started doing things in the lab in January when Kristi joined the group so maybe we are ahead of schedule? The good news is we have a decent bit of funding between my start-up, and two different grants. I actually had to hire another research associate recently as we just could not keep up. Then we have a big project ready to launch and when the contract is finally signed I'll be able to add two post-docs to the group.
