Successful Scientists Are Not Just Smart—They Work Smart.


As part of our mission to be Scientists Helping Scientists, we surveyed life science researchers to uncover not only their biggest challenges, but also the most valuable lessons they've learned throughout their career. A staggering 82% of survey respondents indicate that they sometimes feel overwhelmed at work. They feel the demands of scientific research. Do you? See what others have to say.


Despite these demands, scientists can rise to the top. Our survey indicates that working efficiently is key for success. That's why the most successful scientists are not just smart—they work smart.
