Captain’s blog 061113:
Never thought this moment would come.
Since the inception of the new lab website several blog-worthy events have transpired.
Charlene Chan (Chemical Biology PhD Program) has joined our flock of angels and will soon contribute her amazing anime cartoon versions of many periodic table elements (no irony; ok…some) to the merchandise section.
Eric Solis has managed to sequester funding from one of the National Institutes of Health by becoming a recipient of the Ruth Kirschstein Award.
Fei Wang has been awarded the Charles King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship. In the words of Mitchell and Web: “That’s numberwang!”
Following completion of MCB54, Vlad Denic has received mixed reviews on his use of the mechanical cat paw to illustrate a key mechanistic concept in protein targeting by the signal recognition particle (as if you didn’t already know what I am talking about).
A recent David Bowie music video has seeded an idea for a new lab video to replace the infamous “Creepy Guy in a Toga Petting a Cat” video, which has been permanently removed from the lab website.
