RE: Histotechs of the world

From:"Dunn-Jena, Patsy Ann"

I agree with Cheryl on this one.  My job listing with the university is as a
Research Analyst I, but I prefer to be called a Research Technologist which
was my title before they changed the job classification.  Involves a little
bit of everything from time to time.  And it's even more fun working at a
University that is part of 2 different state colleges so you get to be known
by the initials of IUPUI!
