Grant news...

Emotional rollercoasters. While a researcher’s career is full of them, few are as regular as those sparked by emails/messages like this one. And because we’re apparently sadists, we tolerate structures that invariably bury the lede, often force you to access another site for the actual decision, hidden behind a password you can’t possibly remember. Throw in the additional delay sparked by a few thousand people all loging in around the same time… and suspense is too mild a term.

However, when you get good news - like that resuling from this email (see how I buried the lede here too?) - well, I’m elated. I’m really excited about this project, and delighted to be able to bring on some new people to tackle it!
