      I had a lot less time in the lab to do my research than I would’ve liked

      It made communications between researchers are less and encouraged more solo-work. Less funds opportunities, less team work.. Ideas are developed when people are working in the same place and together compared when they work separately..

      However, hopefully the next awhile will make research environment go back to where it was and better.

      COVID-19 delayed my experiments.
      Not too much because as I have mice to take care of, I was back in the lab earlier than the other scientists.

      I had to transform my workflows so that I can work effectively from home. While I was, of course, not able to travel, I learned how to make meaningful connections in a purely digital world. I have learned to become more effective by using the computer tools I had at my hands all along. Also, I learned to become more resilient. Crisis means change – and we have to learn to come out stronger towards the end!
