If you could thank one person for their support in your research journey who would that be?
I was reading this article about scientific research being one of the loneliest professions, and it struck me that if researchers are facing isolation at work, they must be getting support and motivation from somewhere else. So many researchers I've spoken to over the years have mentioned about how supportive their family and friends have been while some others have found support and inspiration in a colleague or mentor.
Let's pause for a moment and reflect on who has been the greatest support for us during those times when the going got rough. If you could thank one person for their support in your research journey who would that be?
