I realized that I enjoyed writing and reviewing manuscripts, research highlights, grant proposals, and fellowship applications, as well as preparing posters and presentations and attending conferences, even though I didn’t enjoy doing experiments. I also realized that I was extremely interested in learning about the latest research being published and how it gets disseminated to different audiences, instead of sitting at the bench and doing the research myself.
