Advice? I’d probably say find a research area, perhaps a little bit niche, that you are passionate about and committed to. Think about translating science – and I don’t mean from analytics to the clinic, I mean look at other disciplines and see how those principles can be translated into the research arena that you are passionate about. And remember to walk before you run! It takes years to establish something that you can feel proud of, so patience and perseverance are essential. It’s not a race and I believe it’s better to be right than first.
