On March 17, it was a great pleasure to give a talk at Johns Hopkins University as part of its Postdoctoral Affairs Lecture Series. During my visit, I met with a number of postdoctoral researchers and graduate students in educational and training programs related to bone regenerative engineering. While postdoctoral fellows and graduate students have become the backbone of the research enterprise, we share responsibility for providing them with appropriate research training and career development guidance. I really enjoyed sharing some principles for success and personal philosophies in terms of successfully developing young people.
