Vlog: What is one piece of advice you wish you previously knew or you think other early career investigators should know?

I am delighted to share my latest vlog where I ask researchers at various different stages of career development (from undergraduates to faculty members) to share one piece of advice they would give other trainees.

Thanks so much to everyone who agreed to participate in the video!

Check out the advice from the following researchers at the University of Minnesota’s Lillehei Heart Institute:

  • Megan Eklund, Researcher, Lab of Dr. Kurt Prins
  • Thijs Larson, Undergraduate Researcher, Lab of Drs. Daniel and Mary Garry
  • Javier Sierra-Pagan, Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) student, Lab of Dr. Daniel Garry
  • Lynn Hartweck, Research Associate, Lab of Dr. Kurt Prins
  • Satyabrata Das, Assistant Professor
  • Kurt Prins, Assistant Professor

Special thanks to my husband, Tony Prisco, who helped put the video together!

Hope you enjoy this vlog and thanks for checking it out!
