In the beginning, there was Darkness (Placement entry #1)

All good stories start at the beginning, with the hero unready and unknowing of their journey. This is no different, hunting for a placement that played to my specific skillset. Luckily, part of that skillset is prudence and diligence, so I was the first to begin a long and arduous process of paperwork. But in the distance, the light shone brightly.


I passed the paperwork of my university to the lab, and then back, and then to the lab again, and finally, completed it myself. fortunately, I survived the fearsome paperwork, and began in earnest!

I have been added to the lab’s Sport performance team, and will be assisting in developing the image of the lab, through it’s website, among other lab duties. Much like I am here. Fitting, isn’t it?


The learning begins now!

Placement: P.H.D. Panic

Welcome to a diary of my adventure as a lab assistant in Plymouth, assisting with P.H.Ds, Mres and general lab stuff!


Under this category, you will find a collection of information about random lab protocols, and spend your time trawling through my time in a very hot (or cold!) room! See the source image
