Thanks to the AAMC Great Group Submission of how to keep your research on track with these work-from-home ideas:

  • continue data analysis and design of experiments
  • read scientific literature
  • virtually attend journal clubs, lab meetings, and defenses
  • host your dissertation committee meetings virtually
  • write and rewrite drafts of manuscripts
  • prepare grant/fellowship applications
  • start dissertation chapters, i.e., literature review for those not at that stage, or completing dissertations by those more advanced
  • seek journals for unsolicited reviews
  • prepare research seminars, and/or posters for meetings
  • take online courses to enhance skillsets for experimental work (e.g., bioinformatics, bioengineering techniques, Python)
  • perform computational modeling
  • review SOP techniques 
  • search sequence data
  • conduct secondary analysis 
  • work collaboratively to outline an experimental plan for a study 
  • work on figures for a collaborative manuscript-typically one member of the team is better at plotting or figure representation and the whole team could share authorship
  • enhance career development through NIH OITE
