Guide for Students
In Case of Emergency ....
- In case of emergency, I will call 911 and take my student(s) to a hospital. Please be responsible to have insurance.
My Role in the Lab
- Grant Writing
- Writing Project Reports
- Writing Papers
- Supervise Students: Research Activities & Wring Papers
- Keep Our Protocols Updated
- Organize Files in the DropBox Folders
What I Expect from Students
- Work independently (my time is limited, so I cannot answer every single question. Sorry!)
- Initial discussion with TK
- Work by student (Please spend some time for solving minor problems, this is a good training to be independent in future)
- Discussion with TK
- The difference between "ordinary" and "extraordinary" is just "extra". Anybody (ordinary person) can be extraordinary by adding some "extra values" on my/your work. So, don't be lazy when you work on your research/experiment/writing.
- Recording is a key element in research. You write lab notebook and record every activities. It's not for you, it's for others who will do same assay/research in future.
- Create templates for your lab notebook to save your time, especially for repetitive tasks.
- Time is a resource: Use every single second for research activities during work time (study/experiment/cleaning), especially in downtime (e.g. when you wait for centrifuge).
- Don't be afraid to make mistakes. It happens. But try not to make same mistakes. If you make mistake, spend some time and think how you can avoid it in future.
- Let me know if you make mistake(s). Most of time, I have backup samples. Don't hide.
- Keep lab area clean. Clean after your experiment. If you have extra time, clean for others as well.
