At the Bench: A Laboratory Navigator

£28.00

Product description

465 pages including index. Clean laminated boards with slight yellowing around the edges and the spine due to age. Pages are spiral bound onto boards. Significant crease to first page. Previous owner's name inscribed onto inside of front board. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. Again, very slight yellowing around the edges of the pages due to age.

'A research laboratory filled with competent, busy people entirely familiar with its arcane customs and practices is a daunting place for newcomers. Kathy Barker knows this world. She was a technician, an undergraduate, then a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts, and as a postdoctoral fellow and assistant professor at Rockefeller University, she was a mentor to grad students, physicians in training, technicians, and research nurses. From this rich experience, she has written 'At the Bench', a unique handbook for living and working in the laboratory. Much more than a simple primer or lab manual, this book is an essential aid to understanding: How research groups work at a human level-and how to fit in; what equipment is essential, and how to use it properly; how to get started and how to get organised; how to set up an experiment; how to handle and use data and reference sources; how to present yourself and your results- in print and in person.

Wise, light-hearted, but thoroughly practical, Dr. Barker offers advice, moral support, social etiquette, and professional reassurance.' (Information taken from rear cover)
