Let’s face it, there are many scientists who are brilliant at the bench but tongue tied at the presenter’s podium. Unfortunately, while graduate school may adequately prepare students for a life of research, not enough emphasis is placed on improving communication skills which can be used to explain complicated research projects to the lay public. That is why it is refreshing to learn that schools such as the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine have created competitions with the express goal of improving scientific communication.
To learn about other fantastic efforts aimed at improving scientific communication, read Science Speak which was published in the Scientists earlier this month.

The scientific world has experienced rough financial times lately. Tenure track careers are harder to come by and a career as a bench scientist seems less attractive than what it once was. You’ve worked hard to become a scientist, but what if it doesn’t work out? Do you have a “Plan B?”

MassBio is a not-for-profit organization committed to advancing the development of critical new science, technology and medicines that benefit people worldwide.
In the following video posted on the MassBio YouTube channel, 5 panelists discuss their career paths including their journey into industry. It is especially interesting to hear from Frank Dolan who almost flunked out of school and is now the senior vice president of MedPanel in Cambridge, Mass.
