"Competition in academia is so vicious because the stakes are so small.” - Laurence J. Peter. Variations on this theme have been attributed to Henry Kissinger, Wallace S. Sayre, Charles P. Issawi, and others. As Secretary of Faculties at Purdue, I observed this type of competition in person on numerous occasions.
Our daughter Lauren is already a VIN Parasitology Consultant, leading her Dad into this realm.
What I Like Most About VIN
The opportunity to share the parasitology-related knowledge I have gained over the decades as well as new information I learn at the annual AAVP meetings and through research articles.
