A Whole New Lab (Dealings of a New Professor #1)

I just turned in my first external grant and I am HYPE (C’mon Cystic Fibrosis Foundation). So… I can’t sleep. I wanted to write on what it’s been like a new PI, but that will have to wait because when I sat down, I had kid’s music stuck in my head. When that happens, I have to write new lyrics to get it out of my head. So without further ado, here is that Disney classic from Aladdin, A Whole New Lab.

I can show you the lab

Equipment borrowed and brand new

Tell me, students, now won’t you give this young PI a try

 

I still work at the bench

Hope to not micromanage

I’m just into the data that I hope you might provide

 

A whole new lab

A new fantastic project for you

New toys are coming in

Not hard to spend (yet)

I want to do some science

 

A whole new lab

A dazzling place for you to do

Projects to change the field

Bad bugs will yield

Let me share this whole new lab with you

 

A whole new lab

Rotate with me

At U of A

Room 221

In MRB

 

More on what it’s like to be a PI later. Also, there was a new podcast from the new crew. Check it out at cure4kids.org/ums/sites/teachers/plugins/page.php?id=19

 

Cheers,

Michael
