Today, we find ourselves in a major point in history. Research life is not what it looked like just a few months ago. We are sitting down, virtually, with members of the research community to hear about their research life in the here and now, and the potential impact they see on the future.

In this episode, I continue to explore research life under lockdown, this time from the perspective of Comzit Opachaloemphan, an international PhD Student at the New York University School of Medicine. We discuss how the pandemic may impact the completion of Comzit’s PhD and the benefits new online courses are providing him.

These are the stories of science, research and the research landscape in unprecedented times.
