Bio: My name is Lauren, and I am a Scottish virologist living and working in London. I am in the final stretch of my first postdoc position carrying out Influenza research, and when not in the lab, I am a big reader of fantasy, horror, and sci-fi, cyclist of bicycles, lover of pet rats, and enthusiastic runner. And now also an attempted blogger. I will be using this blog as a means to talk about my experiences during the transfer from PhD student to postdoc (it really is all in the title) and everything that goes along with that (the rest). I consider myself responsible for everything I write on this blog - any views and opinions expressed are my own.
