One of theinflexible expectations in this lab is that you have a deep understanding of your particular research area, a broad knowledge of current aspects of molecular & cancer biology (with particular regard to the latest technologies) & that you remain current with these areas while in this lab. Therefore, your first several weeks in the lab may simply be bringing yourself up-to-date on your project's area. Peruse the tables of contents of all the required journals and read those that apply (either by subject or using a method you wish to employ) in detail. Please make the time to read the required journals as they come out as it is easy to fall behind and nearly impossible to catch up.
