My Nobel Connections...

Several years ago I did a month stint in the lab or Sydney Brenner. He was always very busy, but we had some nice chats about molecular evolution. Then, he won the Nobel Prize.

On Monday, I will be working with Oliver Smithies. Who is Oliver Smithies you might ask?

CHAPEL HILL -- Oliver Smithies, a UNC professor of pathology, has been named a 2006 Thomson Scientific Laureate in the field of physiology/medicine. The 27 laureates named by Thomson are likely contenders for Nobel Prizes in the near future, according to the company.
Want your name up in bright lights, just hang out with me baby.

Just kidding of course.
