Graduate student Erik Faber of the Georg lab is coauthor on a recent article published on Nature.com titled "What Medicine Can Teach Academia About Preventing Burnout." The authors propose a number of measures to combat burnout in science academia, including connecting graduate students with the public sphere, enabling time away from the lab, and exposing students to non-academic job opportunities. As the article contents, "Many studies have shown that people who experience stress also experience decreased productivity and creativity, compared with those who feel little or no stress — yet these two traits are key to being a successful scientist."
