Wafik S. El-Deiry: Academic life and too many things on the to do list

Wafik S. El-Deiry shared on LinkedIn:              .

“Academic Life: Reviewing grants this evening (1200 pages in total) on a long train ride 3 days after submitting a 600 page grant. Too many things are on the to do list (papers to publish, talks to give, grants to submit, research meetings, clinic and many administrative tasks) and they must all be done in a timely fashion. (Not to mention various trainings that are expiring).”
