"It's good to consider many ideas and reject most, even all of them, on thinking them through," says Professor Shankar Balasubramanian in a recent feature article in Nature Methods.
The 29 September issue of Nature Methods also showcases two papers by Shankar, who conducts research both in the Department of Chemistry and the university’s CRUK. In the article, Shankar comments that Cambridge is a "thought-provoking, beautiful environment with a close-knit community across all disciplines." He also talks about the value of doing things outside the lab to keep a balanced life. His motivation is revealed by the key phrase: "I love doing science."
