Casey's 'mind was blown' (her words!) one day when she learned in her high school science class that a cellular function they were studying worked via an 'unknown mechanism.' She decided then and there that she wanted to study science. Casey went on to work in a lab washing glassware (how many of us got our start!) before studying signal transduction during her graduate school work. During her postdoc she recognized that academic research often confines you to one lane and she wanted to do more, to learn more. So she worked as a field application scientist for a microscope company before moving on to Benchling where she gets to do EVEN MORE! She shares these and other awesome stories from her career with us on the podcast. Thanks for listening!
