      Getting to learn new things everyday and finding out answers to questions that nobody has asked before, or that nobody knew the answer to before ๐Ÿ‘

      Learning something new everyday.
      Being one of the first people in the world to know about the latest scientific discoveries.
      I get to learn about all sorts of different research areas, not just one.
      I also get to be creative as a scientist making videos, writing blogs, recording podcasts all to share science in fun and engaging ways

      I agree that itโ€™s all about learning new things and solving new problems! Other great things include the people you meet and places that you get to travel to to meet them! โœˆ๏ธ

      I love that as scientists, we discover things that no-one else has ever discovered before! And then we get to share that knowledge with the world.

      Using my brain to solve problems and answer questions, and getting to share the methods I use and things I find out with others.

      Learning something new – constantly! Even just spending time with other scientists I feel like I learn a lot of things. I also really love to be able to work with patients – it’s easy to lose a picture of “the real world” and get sucked into a “science bubble” – so working with patients is a great way to learn about what issues people currently face, and how to feed this back into our work.
