With five kids and top notch jobs, Doctors Maiken Nedergaard and Steve Goldman prove that its possible to have both a flourishing family and a successful career in science. He’s the Director of the Department of Neurology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and she’s a Director of the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the same university. The couple, who both use Stereo Investigator in their labs, appear in an article about “Power Couples” in The Scientist. From saving weekends for the kids, to finding moments to be alone together, Dr. Nedergaard and Dr. Goldman give advice on balancing a busy lab life with raising a family.
