Still here . . .

Been a little busy lately. I'm wrapping up my last research rotation in the Cole lab, and studying for my final exam next week. I also have a new home away from home for the next four (or five?) years. Starting June 13th, I'll be doing my thesis research in the Brinckerhoff lab. The details still need to be sorted out, but my research will revolve around a group of enzymes and their role/regulation in arthritis.

Lynnie and baby are doing well. All three of us went to see Revenge of the Sith last weekend. Baby really appreciated the thunderous sounds coming from the speakers in the theater. According to Lyn, she kicked throughout the entire move :)

Krebs Cycle Song

Our class has a big ugly exam coming up on Monday. It looks like some of us (myself included) are getting a little punchy from all the studying. One of my classmates just sent out a link to a song about the Krebs cycle, one of the major topics on the exam. I was nearly in tears from laughing. Maybe I should get some sleep :)

[Just in case you're wondering, the Krebs cycle is a component of cellular metabolism and is how we get most of our energy from food. If you're REALLY interested, there's some more info here: click.]
