About the Author
Kate Christian has worked in health and medical research for over 30 years, mostly for organizations conducting and supporting cancer research. Scientifically trained, she has chosen not to work in a laboratory, but to use her scientific background and a flair for organization to manage research projects and assist scientists with the management of their research.Her objectives have included providing environments and skills which encourage effective, efficient research and to encourage and facilitate communication about that successful research to all stakeholders.The nature of her work has involved Kate with many early-career researchers in a range of disciplines, and she has developed skills in teaching them how to manage themselves, their research and their careers.Now, having built up a body of expertise over many years, Kate is seeking to take this learning further by undertaking a PhD. This is focusing on the challenges faced by early-career researchers in the sciences, and looking for opportunities to address some of them. This book provides one such tool.
