The Daily Grind – Then vs. Now (Part 1)
There was a bit of a culture shock (no microbiological pun intended!) when I made the move from working as a veterinary surgeon in a busy mixed practice to being a PhD student working in a laboratory. There was a learning curve too. A steep one, which shows no signs of leveling out.

It was a bit of a change to say the least.
