When asked if he would do anything differently if starting his research career again, Adam said: “I honestly don’t think I would. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had, and excited to see where I get to, I don’t think I’d change anything that has happened because it’s helped me reach a position that I never thought I would be. I am always learning, and regularly rely on someone to guide me through some decisions, but I wouldn’t do anything differently.”

You can also read about how Adam’s Pre-Doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship has allowed him to develop a research career while continuing his clinical work in a blog published earlier this year.
