I wish to extend my warmest congratulations to our long term reader, annoyer of cobloggers, holder of feet to the fire and all around insightful and hilarious commenter becca who announced the successful defense of her dissertation today.
7 years...6 committee members...5 giant full lab notebooks...4 manuscripts/drafts...3 Thesis Advisors...2 grey hairs...1 PhD
You can tell from this and from the occasional details she posts in comments around the scientific blogs that it has not been an easy road. And yet she has persevered and succeeded in being awarded the Ph.D. for her work.
Congratulations, my friend.
Congratulations on all of your hard work, late nights and frustrating experiments.
I am very much looking forward to the tales of your next endeavors as a scientist.
