Vivien, great job! This is such an interesting topic that happens at daily bases in most of the laboratories, but no scientific journalist talked about it until I found your podcast. The first French and Spanish vocabulary I learned from my friends were "merde" and "consado", respectively; obviously because they were postdocs!

What a great story!  Dr. Day you are such a caring human being. A great example for the entire scientific community. You are knowledgeable and able to connect people. Isn't collaboration a key factor for science progression? 
Thank you for your beautiful stories.

This is an excellent article, not only about how to present but where adn what to look for. Most big findings are serendipitous, and boggles our mind. Keeping an open mind, looking for crazy connections everywhere, not just in high tier journals, is a w3onderful suggestion. Thank you

Hi, Sarawati,

I am glad that this article is helpful for you! There are so many interesting and important papers out there, not necessarily in the top-tier journals. For example, Luria-Delbruck distribution was published in the journal Gene in 1943. The work, which won them Nobel Prize, is the foundation of research in the evolution of cells, but the modern impact factor of the journal was like 4.0.

Hi, Juan,

Very nice to hear from you! We are doing well here and running lots of preclinical studies. How are you doing in Spain?
