[Histonet] doing histology in an academic research setting

Hi everyone,

I have been doing histology professionally for the past 5 years in an
academic research lab setting (and an additional 5 years for my own grad
studies).  I take pride in the samples I have processed, cut, stained, and
I love being able to troubleshoot any challenges or questions that the lab
encounters. While I have this feeling for the actual work churned out, I
can’t help but feel left out in lab meetings when actual data are presented
and discussed. It makes me feel I don’t do enough. I guess what I’ve
struggled with is that I do want to be a part of doing data procurement and
analysis, but with the amount of work routine histology requires there’s
not enough time in the day to also do microscope work and count for data.
For those who are in a similar setting, do you share the same feeling?

My apologies in advance if this is a silly thing to share/ask, but it has
been bugging me for some time now.
