After spending months or years designing, performing and polishing a research project, it seems unjust to distill it down to a few thousand word report describing a limited set of data visualizations. However, the ability to honestly and succinctly do so is a crucial skill for life science researchers. Additionally, in an era where there is a glut in the global supply of doctorates [1], how does one assess the quality of individuals earning that prestigious-sounding degree? Thus, it’s no surprise that the University of Pennsylvania’s Cellular and Molecular Biology (CAMB) graduate group stipulates that a doctoral candidate have a certain number of publicat...

One way is through the PENN-Postdoctoral Opportunities in Research and Teaching (PENN-PORT) program, which combines traditional post-doctoral training with an immersive teaching experience. It is one of 20 programs funded by the NIH under the Institutional Research and Career Development Award initiative. Each institution implements a unique blend of scientific and pedagogical training and STEM outreach. Here, we present the perspective of a current PENN-PORT fellow.
