It will depend entirely on you and how much you wish to see your day like. Not withstanding the challenges, uncertainties and worries that come with the job, there is so many possibilities to learn, meet new friends, discover unimaginable opportunities and creations. Never forget also that what you do know is only a stepping stone to doing something greater. Therefore do not look at just yourself as being what you are now as the future. See everything as a journey to something else. As the saying goes, every great thing that happened to you, happened because you took the first small step. All the best!

Well being a medical researcher is very interesting and entails a lot. Reading and researching, to lab work and to having and attending meetings.
This is just an overview i will give. It usually depends on what work or project the researcher is working on. Arriving at your office, one will check the progress of any lab work that was left overnight. one must have a plan of what he or she will do during the day, this may involve laboratory work, meetings , researching on protocols, checking on reagents or even taking inventory.
It usually depends on the individual researcher but what is key is to plan your day.

Joseph’s Answer

There is never a dull moment as a project after project is brought to the research center. Sometimes sensitive biochemical material is handled and sometimes if care is not taken a worker gets exposed to some virus. However, there comes a time when discoveries are made and it becomes a Eureka moment.

Hi Joesph, this doesn't directly answer the student's question. What does a medical researcher do on a day to day basis? What are the typical responsibilities? Gurpreet Lally
