      Yes, I use the same big office with 4 more people. That’s because I’m at the beginning of my career. As scientists advance in their career, they get their own office.

      Good question, yes I share all of my work space with other people.

      I’m in a large group office of around 30 people including other scientists, doctors and nurses. I share all my lab space with other scientists that use the same methods as me. The other people in my office and labs work on neuroscience, cancer, diabetes, and lung disease.

      So as you can see it’s very mixed and quite social which is really nice.
