TWiM 199: PhD Balance

I don’t often post episodes of This Week in Microbiology here, but this one is different because it touches all fields of science.

We had two guests in this episode, recorded at ASM Microbe 2019. First, Susanna L. Harris talked about her bout with depression in graduate school, and her founding of PhD Balance to help academics with mental illness.

Our second guest Alex Politis from the NIH who spoke about the process of peer review.

Both important topics for all scientists! With video.
