Love and Fear in Research and Writing

This week I had the pleasure to tag along to my life scientist friends to hear the opening talk of a large biology/cancer research conference in Amsterdam. The speaker was Uri Alon from Israel's Weizmann Institute and I loved what he had to say. He spoke about the emotional aspects of being a primary investigator, running a research lab and mentoring students. I found his talk to be universal and insightful also for us lawprawfs and social scientists. Also - he plays the guitar during his talks - and he even improvises a song with requests from the audience. You can him here on related themes and his famous "I got scooped" song.
