How do scientific researchers come up with their ideas?

I'm an 11th grader in some biotechnology classes, and it's got me very interested in pursuing a career in medical research. However, I don't really understand how researchers come up with their ideas. Is there a list out there to choose from, or do people come up with them themselves? Because I've been trying and never came up with anything.

Is there any career where Genetics and Cancer research morphs into a single job?

I am drawn to genetic studies and also, I find myself really interested in Cancer treatment and research. I want to contribute to the advancements in Cancer research. I wanted to know if there are any courses through which I can become a Cancer researcher. Which course is it? What should I do after school to get that degree? How long will it take for the completion of that degree and where can I work after that? What's the average salary and what does the whole process look like? #research #biology #science #medicine #phD #lab #cancer

Is it necessary to minor in chemistry if I am interested in the criminal forensic laboratory field?

Hello, I am a current student at Xavier University located in Cincinnati, Ohio (Go Muskies!). I am double major in criminal justice and psychology and will hope to complete Xavier University with a bachelor degree in science. With my immense passion for justice, I want to take my bachelor degree to criminal forensic lab. However, I am concern that I may or may not be on the correct path in making my way to what I want to pursue in my career option. My concern is if whether I should continue my double major with criminal justice and psychology and go forth a minor in chemistry. Another option that I had in mind was if I should consider psychology as a minor and make chemistry my actual second major? I have already proceeded to gain required hours for my psychology major is that helps with anyone answering my question(s)/concern. I would appreciate anyones guidance, professional or not. Thank you! -Jeremy B. #fafsa #xavieru #xavieruniveristy #1kscholarship #studentloan #scholarship #financialaid #lowincome #jesuitcollege #musketeer #criminaljustice #criminal #science #psychology #chemistry #justice#forensic #lab #laboratory

How can my passion for science play out in a career?

I am a junior at Boston Collegiate and I am extremely curious about the field of science, especially when it bubbles down to the bonds and atoms. Knowing how things in the world work, down to the finest detail, has always made me interested in the field of science, specifically with environmental science or chemistry. I also love working in labs and handling chemicals with tedious steps. I want to make a career out of this curiosity, but I don't know how to go about this. What kind of degree do I need? What kind of job can I get? What does a day with this job look like? #science #chemistry #environmental #nature #lab
