Disgruntled Julie

Disgruntled Julie is a laboratory slave 6th year Ph.D. student studying pediatric cancer through biochemistry and biophysics. When she isn't in lab (never), she enjoys cooking, cleaning, crafting, and other domestic goddess type activities. When she is in lab (always), she spends her time attempting to purify seemingly non-purifiable proteins, determining the structure of unstructured proteins, fighting with the pH meter, and injecting mice with cancer. Disgruntled Julie survives by finding the humor in lab life, and rants accordingly.

I’m Disgruntled Julie, and this is my labo-rant-ory. It’s taken me a little while to settle into my new digs here at LabSpaces, but I hope I’ll be worth the wait (maybe? anyone? maybe not). As a sixth year graduate student, I’ve been around the block enough to have witnessed some truly ridiculous things… but am still naive enough to be able to laugh it off with a humorous rant (because, let’s be honest, it’s not MY grant money on the line right now when someone else screws up).

Expect to find a little less science-in-the-news talk around here (though of course, I plan on sharing anything exciting that comes my way, either in terms of research or new techniques), and a little more discussion of life in the lab and attempts at tackling that giant hurdle in my path: what the hell do I want to do when (if?) I finally graduate?!?

(Suggestions welcome.)

Don't worry Julie, I'm trying to bring a few more ranters in here to make you feel cozy. We already have Jaded by Biotech setting up shop, so you two can have a lab rant cuddle fest :P

Yay! I am totes looking forward to the rants. Especially since my rants are going to probably be more non-lab related.

Ranting is my favorite form of scientific discussion.
