Shooting for the Stars

Been there, done that. Biochemist-in-training Bridget Williams tells other students the good, the bad, and the ugly about getting a Ph.D. in science

Abstract: As the first scientist in her family, biochemistry graduate student Bridget Williams tells fellow minority students, "If I can do it, you can do it." The initial experiments for her dissertation project didn't produce results, leading her to question whether science really was for her. But she kept at it, eventually finding a line of research that one of her mentors says will make an important contribution.
