45. The Life Of A Researcher - Thick Skin and Persistence

My guest today is Dr. Dennis Black. Dr. Black is one of a kind. I heard of Dr. Black from a listener to this podcast, and once I heard how established he is as an accomplished researcher and award-winning physician while also being an avid fan of Bonnaroo- I couldn’t resist asking him to be on the show.

I had a great time with Dr. Black where we cover:

  • The time when he wanted to be a mad scientist as a kid, and he lit a desk on fire
  • The patience and persistence of a researcher
  • Why he loves pouring into students finding their way
  • How research is changing and why data is being used to proactively solve problems
  • And more!

Please enjoy this week’s episode with Dr. Dennis Black!

Dr. Black is currently the scientific director of the Children’s Foundation Research Institute (CFRI), The Buckman Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Finally, he is the co-owner of the Memphis-based music label Black and Wyatt Records.
