I don't know if I have mentioned it, but back in the day, I worked in a lab.
The lab was a molecular physiology lab at SIU. I spent my time pipetting tiny amounts of all kinds of things for a couple of the medical school professors. I did a lot of lab prep and some research for them as well.
We grew cell lines and studied breast cancer.
We studied gene regulation/expression.
I really liked it, but in the end decided a PhD was not for me.
I worked with all sorts of people at the lab. Mike and Jodi were the professors and the brains behind the operation. Phil was a full-time researcher working on his own theories as he earned his PhD. Ramya was a PhD candidate from India. And there were plenty of us that worked in the lab while we were finishing up our undergrad.
One of my favorite co-workers was a Japanese girl named Takumi.
She was so sweet and quite funny. Sometimes it was unintentional because of cultural differences.
When I ran across this picture the other day I laughed out loud.
That is a tub of diluted bleach solution.
Damn you English.
