In desperate need of sunlight today.?
Because I just couldn’t stand not being able to walk in the woods this winter.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
The 30-year-old Japanese researcher who led a scientific discovery of potentially Nobel proportions has caused a media storm in her home country. Everyone wants to know: who exactly is the young woman behind the pipette?
Any rikejo followers out there who want to share their experiences?
Also, I hope she gets a Nobel for this work. And I hope she shows up to the ceremony wearing that pink apron. Because she is probably one of the few people on this planet possessing the badassery to pull it off.
Also x2, I think I am going to gift my supervisor a bright pink trash can (and a bottle of good Scotch) when I finish my program. I think he’d like that.
Oh my gosh - pink things in a lab making groundbreaking discoveries?!?!?! Is that even possible??? Sarcasm!!!
Of course of it’s possible. And awesome. But really, let’s move on from the pink thing and talk more about revolutionizing stem cell research.
Also, does the Wall Street Journal usually not refer to people with Ph.D.s as Dr.? Because her professional title is Dr. Obokata, not Ms. Obokata (unless there is a cultural difference in title usage I’m not aware of).
