Congrats. I wasn't going to have a beer tonight, but this calls for a celebration! Gonna hit the taps now!  :) (thanks for the excuse!)

Me too . . so down the pie hole with the Alaskan Smoked Porter clone.   :P


Tom, can you advocate this??   "A beer a day keeps the Doctor away . . ."
It depends on the doctor.  If there's beer to be had, I might show up on your doorstep :)

Tom, can you advocate this??   "A beer a day keeps the Doctor away . . ."

Probably can unless the "doctor" is a beer loving mooch! :)
Like I was saying . . . :)

What if he's a time lord?
Tom, you aren't "the" doctor are you?  I've heard there's been a regeneration....

Now THAT would be cool!  Maybe instead of Dr. Who, Tom could be Dr. WHAT??
Yeah, here's a "Dr. What??" for you . . . the title of my dissertation is:

"Characterization of Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Associated Mutants of the Human CuZn Superoxide Dismutase Monomer by Molecular Dynamics Simulations"

;D

It's not the greatest title in the world but it is accurate and I was on a deadline so it's what I'm stuck with now.

Dammit!  The ale might be wet but the hops never were unless it had been raining.  I know you're just trying to wind me up, but it works. :)

 :o holey moley, backpedaling already?  wowza that doctoral achievement takes over fast. 
hehe, just ribbing you a little.   8)

Anyway,  I am {edit: um still} curious of your field of study. 
I think folks that have PhD's and goats on their chin are just automatically cool.

I do disease research, my PhD is in biochemistry.

In the case of my dissertation, I looked at the structural changes to a protein caused by mutations.  The mutations cause ALS (aka Lou Gehrig's disease or MND for those in the Europe).  Using computer simulations we can look at the atomic level and see the effects of the mutation on the protein structure.  It's especially important in this case because there is a gain of toxicity instead of the usual loss of function.

My next project involves a different protein and a different disease, but will use a similar approach.  I'll be joining the Dept of Bioengineering as a postdoc, and partnering with a yeast lab in the Dept of Pharmacology for experimental work based on the results of the computer work.

Interesting.  Seems like good life work. 
Congrats on the postdoc!

So how does Lou Gehrig translate into MN in europeanish?
I bet that was not one of your defense questions. ;D

In Europe, ALS is included in a group of diseases called Motor Neurone Disease.  I wish that had been one of the questions. ;D

Oh man, really?  I've been working on writing that up too.  Dang!  You beat me to it.  (only I spelled out copper and zinc, and mine have lots of mers)

Jeeze Tom, it's no wonder you drink!

What's your excuse? ;) ;D

Like we need a reason beyond "it tastes great and makes me feel good". ;D

Congrats...get a job...no, I mean a real one...  ;)

My major professor once said, "The best thing to get out of graduate school is yourself."
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

Now you've done it...don't be surprise if a bunch of guys come up to you at NHC next year and show you body parts and ask if it's infected.   ;D
