Web Exclusive: Skills of a Successful Scientist
Dr. Mario Capecchi talks with Shauna Lake about what it takes to be a successful scientist.
He points out that there are two different part of science; thinking and doing. He says one part is imagination and the other is about getting it done. Dr. Capecchi says, "Those are two very different skills and what you have to do is combine the two." Dr. Capecchi says the experimental science is what he always wanted to do, but says a scientist has to be good at both.
