Vom Autor: On Becoming an Islet Researcher At the time of this writing, I have spent a quarter of a century in islet research, but the purpose of this article is not to share my journey with you. I do not want to bore you with anecdotes from my experiences, but it is impossible that my views will not be subjective. Be Clear About Your Goal Irrespective of whether you have started islet research recently, or you have spent almost a whole life in islet research, it is worthwhile to reflect upon your goals. Here is the big picture. About 194 million people in the world are suffering from some form of islet failure, and by 2025 this number may increase to 333 million. The ?-cells of many young people and children are dead. To live a normal life, they need to take insulin injections daily, and they need to prick their finger tips for testing plasma glucose concentration, numerous times. In others, overwork of the ?-cells caused by overeating leads to the failure, and eventually to the death of these cells. If you want to see the burden of islet failure, do not hesitate to visit a nearby diabetes clinic. This may open your eyes, or give you a much needed insight. Your goal is to contribute to the discovery of something, so that this huge human tragedy can somehow be prevented, treated, or cured. Your goal is not primarily to publish papers or just to do some experiments solely to satisfy your own intellectual curiosity. Your goal is not just counting the numbers of your publications, and their impact factors, and not to secure a promotion, advance your own career, or receive prizes. You have a bigger goal, which you may or may not reach, within your lifetime, but if you are conscious of your ultimate goal, you are better prepared to work steadily towards that goal. You may then become the islet researcher that you dream to be. If you wish not to have a clear goal and prefer to see your scientific journey as the goal, then it is up to you. I think it is important to have visions and goals, perhaps some small goals, if not a big goal to start with. Become the Finest Islet Researcher The making of an islet researcher is not easy. Becoming a good islet researcher can be a long process. Educate yourself, keeping in mind that it is never too early or too late to start learning anything new. Through a choice of an unconventional path of education, you may become a specialist in more than one subject, and may thus be better prepared. You may first become a molecular biologist, and then educate yourself as a chemist. Numerous other combinations are possible. Enrich yourself with the necessary knowledge, and the skills from whatever source you need to. You may need to move to the environments that promote creativity, that have better infrastructures, and traditions for good research. To do this, you may need to leave your home country, and then struggle hard to adapt yourself to the new environments. You almost certainly need to acquire a broad base of knowledge before you focus on some special areas. At the same time, you must also be able to filter out as much unnecessary information and distractions as possible. In an age of information pollution, your ability to decide what to filter out, and to filter those out effectively, may determine how intelligent you are. Clearly, you will not be able to do many things, at least not at the same time. Start with asking one of the most important questions in the field of islet research, keeping in mind that you are expected to discover things that you are not aware of beforehand. Do not waste time in rediscovering the wheel. If you are not asking an important question, then it does not matter how sophisticated instrument or advanced method you are using. Identify your strength, strength of your institution, and that of your network if you wish to. Once you have identified the strengths, use those. Do what you think is the right thing to do without fear of being judged by others, but resist the temptation to work on many projects at the same time; take the one you have started to completion. You do not need to compare yourself with others. You do not need to think that you are less talented than others. Do not give up when the going forward seems tough. Dig as deep as possible or change the direction based on your sound judgment. See mistakes as valuable learning experiences. If you have time, get inspirations by reading the life histories of other great scientists. From such readings, you may get important insights about how to develop your own intuition and creativity, and about how to get clues about the so called "unknown unknowns." Depending on your question and the nature of the project, you may find it useful to work alone or with a small dedicated team, or you may need to network personally with a handful of scientists, including some who are not conventional islet researches. You may benefit more if you attend meetings that do not deal with islet research or if you read papers that do not deal with islet research. If you can bring a small piece of new knowledge from the fields that are very distant from the contemporary islet research, and apply that knowledge to solve some of the common questions in the field of islet research, that may contribute to a breakthrough. Islet research is not just about science, it is a way of life. You have to make difficult choices during your journey. You are sincere about your purpose in life. At times you may have to juggle with too many bolls in the air. It will affect your social life and your relationships with your near and dear ones. Set your priorities right. You have decided to spend your life for the benefit of people who have islet failure. You are not after money, fame, glamour or festivities. You are a genuine islet researcher. The Ecosystem of Islet Research Unfortunately, it is not enough that you have developed yourself as one of the finest islet researchers, and that you have clear visions and goals. The chances of breakthroughs in islet research will depend on what we can call the ecosystem of islet research. The ecosystem of islet research will determines the growth, survival, and creativity of the type of islet researchers that I have alluded to. Important components of this ecosystem include the educational and research enterprises, the funding agencies, the governments and policy makers, industries, publishers, and last but not the least, the patient organizations. The ecosystem of islet research, as well as the ecosystem of research in general, has changed over the past decades, and it will keep changing. For an individual islet researcher, it may be difficult to track these changes, and it may be impossible for them to adapt to the changes that are taking place rather rapidly. At first sight, it may appear that the ecosystem has worked well, and has ensured important discoveries at a steady rate. Islet researchers are not supposed to question the ecosystem; the only thing expected of them is to adapt to the changes for their own survival and earn their bread and butter. Survival of the islets researchers depends on their ability to write grant applications, and their ability to convince the people who read those applications that their ideas are excellent and the goals are achievable. Islet researchers spend enormous amount of time, money, and energy on writing grants and in about 80 % of the cases, the applications are rejected. It is impossible to assess who is the most talented islet researcher. Since talent cannot be measured, an opportunistic way is to measure what islet researchers have published in the past and how many times those publications have been cited. Even if one is able to identify the most talented islet researchers based on their performances in the past, it is impossible that these selected islet researchers will perform equally well in the future. Some scientists think that the system we have is counter-productive, and wasteful of time and energy (Garwood 2011). (Please continue reading the rest in the book).
