Ok #AcademicTwitter. This month, I'm entering my 3rd year of PhD! yayy🎉

I was looking through my 1st research journal and found these "tips" I had written for myself. I thought I'll share them here.

So, here's a 🧵of #PhDtips for those starting their PhD!

#PhDlife #PhDchat Image
1. Maintain a #PhDjournal📒
Experiments, results, failures, meetings w/ guide, seminars, weekly plans, proposal brainstorming, talk prep - everything related to your PhD in one notebook.

(coursework & journal notes can be separate, but I used the same note. 1 note/year for me)
2. Read a lot of journal articles. A lot.
It is the best way to take your research forward!

(I wanted to try the #365papersChallenge, but couldn't keep up. I read way fewer papers than I want myself to. This could be my sign from the universe to step up!)

So folks wanted a #journalclub on the @JAMAPediatrics paper on #epidurals and #autism. Ok......here we go!
1. Let's review the intro first. Beyond conjecture, they offer scant data to justify their study which was an animal study (ref 5). They say 'standard clinical doses of LAs 👇produce neurotoxic effects & altered neurobeh devlpment in monkeys.'
These aren't standard doses. We use in fact substantially lower concentrations & doses of epidural local anesthetics. Plus, this small study in non-laboring monkeys included multiple behav outcomes. So high likelihood of chance finding. Also, anyone know if monkeys get ASD??

@DukePallCare SUCCESS! Journal Club Time Machine: Speed Dating with the Classics. Format - everyone in attendance (MS2-Attending) teaches a classic article for 4 minutes, it is put in context by someone old for 1-2 min, and we move on. Here's the list! A #HPC thread:
No 1 - SUPPORT Trial: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7474243/. 5 AMCs. Docs don't know pt's CPR preference, many DNRs within 2d of death, lots of ICU time and pain. RN led intervention gives docs data. Centers around communication. NO CHANGE IN KEY METRICS.
No 2 - Prognostication: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10678857/. Docs of pts referred to #hospice asked for assessment of prognosis. Only 20% accurate (+/- 33%) with most over-optimistic. Average miss factor of 5.3! Longer pt/doc relationship = worse prognostication accuracy (#LoveThemTooMuch)

Tonight we have a special installment of #MitoMonday as @ClaireBensard hosts a #Tweetorial on her recent paper in @CellMetabolism #LateNightWithTheRutterLab
Can a specific metabolic program provoke a cell to become a cancer cell? Focusing mainly on glucose, with some thoughts on fatty acids, and glutamine, we tested the uncoupling of glycolysis and glucose oxidation to induce the transformation from stem cell to cancer cell. 2/
Long ago, Otto Warburg observed that cancer cells perform aerobic glycolysis, but we didn’t know how a cell could control flux from cytosolic glycolysis to mitochondrial glucose oxidation until the transporter was identified…bit.ly/2RDELqe #MPC 3/
