It's another big issue as we close out the year. Dr Nadia Zainuddin tells us about the importance of showcasing our work. Associate Professor Tracey Danaher speaks with us about her career path and lessons learned. PhD student Sarah Duffy, in the final 12 months of her studies, tells us her plans and offers advice to newbies. Dr Meg Elkins speaks with us about the work of research. And finally, I close out this issue with some thoughts on being innovative, and a request to hear your stories on innovation for a 2015 issue.
