Session Overview

Doing research on a daily basis is very energy consuming, but doing research that constantly returns 'no results' or 'confusing data' is even more strenuous.

This workshop will discuss practical ways to deal with such challenges and soft skills that can help you keep the flame of your scientific curiosity burning bright through such hardship.

In addition, participants will have an opportunity to develop mental resilience strategies to enable them to maintain motivation in the face of such experiences.
