Hi everyone! Today I am posting on behalf of previous SIOP YI-NET member Kathryn Demanelis (USA), check out her post about how she balances her diverse research interests:
I am not sure if I am the best person to write about how to balance research interests since I am generally interested in everything. My dissertation research examined two broad topics: descriptive pediatric cancer epidemiology in Southeast Asia and chronic cadmium exposure and its effects on the epigenome. Both of these projects were based in Thailand and focused on vulnerable populations. Otherwise, these projects are quite different and involve very different datasets, types of analyses, and research questions.
Hi everybody! My name is Liliana, I am a pediatric oncologist and a Young Investigator. I would like to start a discussion about what I consider is one of the most important challenges in our life as researchers, clinicians and scientists: How to “balance” a family life and a demanding professional life.
