Do you often get lost in the tedium of day-to-day research?  Have you forgotten the passion and curiosity that drove you to science in the first place?  As biologists we are privileged to be asking the big questions and probing the mysteries of nature.

That our jobs actually involve messing around with DNA, looking inside single-celled organisms to watch how its proteins move or other similarly mind-boggling interactions with the stuff of life is both humbling and exciting. And the fact that so much remains to be discovered about the basic processes of life, not to mention the impact these discoveries could have on our society, is overwhelmingly inspiring.
