[Histonet] Can you lose your skill? No!

From:Gayle Callis


Listen carefully to the advice handed out by these people.  Read, Read,
Read, surf historelated websites, collect publications and improve your
theory, methods and materials, etc and if anything, be prepared and not
overwhelmed on performance of skills you are not comfortable with e.g.
immunostaining or molecular biology technics.  Remove the boredom and worry
about losing skills - you need to be more concerned about advancing older
and learning new skills which you probably will perform in less time than
you think.  Modern histotechnology is here. 

Been here, done that so many times I can't count and still do it! Even
basic workshops on topics you know are fun just to see how people do things
differently than you plus technical ideas/comparisons are exchanged.  

As for being old as dirt, yup! That's me! But still learning new and fine
tuning old skills that come back to visit me after years of not doing them
and ready for new challenges, the real fun in this work.
