One thought on “Alternative Careers for Developmental Biologists”

  1. Rather than going from developmental biology to something else,I knew very little of developmental biology when starting my work but then was blindsided about four months later when the company’s product was found effective in zebrafish embryos. That was almost eleven years ago. Instead of moving from developmental biology into an alternative career, I found my work in antisense becoming a key tool for developmental biology.

    Eva, I read that you too started in environmental science; I finished my Ph.D. in “environmental sciences and resources: Biology” but found little opportunity for work in that field. Fortunately, my research and teaching had involved enough molecular biology to find biotech work at Gene Tools at about the time that the developmental biology community discovered Morpholinos.
