Laboratory Friendships

Postby I. Levine » Mon Jul 09, 2007 10:10 pm

[The following is a prompt for story content by a Science Careers writer]

An upcoming column of Mind Matters will be looking at workplace friendships. Have you moved to a lab where you already had friends? Have you formed close bonds with others after joining a lab? Are your lab friends peers, subordinates, or supervisors? Are your friends of the same or opposite gender? Do laboratory friendships enhance or detract from productivity and morale? How? I would love to hear personal anecdotes on this topic. Anonymity promised! Please write to me at
