Grant Reviews vs Root Canal

This week is a frenzy of grant reviewing, I'm a member on a National Health and Medical Research (NHMRC) Grant Review Panel this year, which means I need to review 16 grants by the end of this week, and read a total of 100 grants before August. There will be difficult decisions to make, as only 22% or so of grants will be funded, yet i would say well over half the grants are worthy of being funded. The fun of grant reviewing was interrupted mid week by the slightly more painful experience of having a root canal performed on one of my teeth.

Not my actual tooth, but my abscess was sadly bigger than this one

  1. Lucky you! Not! I hope it is feeling better.
    And your lab is enormous! (I'm sure you wish I was praising other things as being enormous.)
