Bitesize Bio's Dan says it is indeed difficult to stay in the business of science, getting grants and making your way through peer-review, no matter what anyone says. It's a "winnowing process" in which ideas are scrutinized and compete, much to the dismay of any scientist's ego. "The only solution is to pay attention to detail, learn how to be thick-skinned, and learn how to write persuasively to grant foundations and scientific journals," he writes.
