      I hope so, I have every intention of continuing to explore science, and even if I’m not still working in a laboratory, I will still be exploring it by reading, writing and telling people about it 😉

      Yes’m. I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love to get up in the morning- think of a cool idea and then run to the lab and test it out. I hope to be in this forever 🙂

      Absolutely – whether in the lab, teaching, or using science to make public policy, I’ll always be connected with the world of science!

      Science is a bit addictive – its fun to do and always challenging so I think I’ll always be doing science, in some way, whatever happens.

      One really exciting thing happening in biology is that huge amounts of data are being generated by scientists and released freely onto the internet. This means that with no more than an internet connection and a decent computer people can do good science (and good experiments) using information that is already availabe, and share their results instantly…!

      I think so, not sure what area I will be working in and what I will have found out along the way but if I’m lucky I will be working in science for many years to come! 🙂
