Where I Work

Where I Work (Nature May 10, 2022) features Mercedes Segovia (MD, PhD) Pasteur Institute of Montevideo) who while doing a medical internship "became curious about what happens before patients reach the hospital: I wanted to help people before they start to feel ill, as opposed to just trying to treat symptoms."

She writes "I think to be successful in this career, you must have passion, patience and — above all — a tolerance for frustration." Plenty of frustration (and pleasures) in science. 

Her marriage led her to France and a decade later she, her husband and their two children returned to Uruguay. He is also an immunologist.

I hope you read this very short article about a career in science.
