Science – more than just lab work?

I keep thinking back to when I started university. There was a great deal of excitement and nerves, and I really felt that once I began my four years of study, everything would fall into place. I had a great interest in what science could offer and, like many others I assume, a passion to create a positive difference in the world. I always thought that I would be content spending the rest of my life working in a lab, and that my only real option would be further study.
