@orneryscientist That's awesome! PNW is amazing, I visited for the first time recently.
I'm in my second year of surgery/transplant research -- mix of device and drug sponsored and investigator initiated trials for lung, liver, and kidneys. My work is a mix of patient consent/follow-up and regulatory. I've been learning more about study start-up this year. The surgeries have been the most exciting part for me though!
