My PhD is essentially in biomedical sciences (specifically translational research), wherein I'm looking into inhibiting myostatin (negative regulator of muscle mass) by a monoconal Ab, and at the same time restoring dystrophin (via gene therapy) to ameliorate symptoms of Duchenne Musclar Dystrophy.
What interests you Craig?
Like a lot of folk here at hypography, pretty much everything interests me.
It’s easier to list what doesn’t. Keeping up with the Kardashians? (though even that does, as a sociological study) As a class, trivia – dredging up rote data, which my phone can better do than me – is what doesn’t interest me.
My abbreviated life story: As a teen in the 1970s, I wanted to be an astronomer, managed to intern in it for a summer, then dropped out into a year of nothing but running and playing RPGs, a year of studying fine arts (in which I learned I was a mediocre draftsman and a bad painter) then, almost by accident, a got a BS in math, taught remedial college math and science (un-lucratively), and found myself employed as a computer programmer, which I’ve been for the past 30 years. Likely because my parents were medical – father a surgeon, mother a nurse then nursing professor – I landed in the medical programming discipline, though for the past 10 years (as a succession of big 3rd-party development shops stole me and my team’s thunder
), I’ve been decreasingly involved in clinical stuff, increasingly in computing infrastructure and business operations.
I’ve a quixotic drive to grock prime numbers in a fame-winning way. Of course, I like to write computer programs. Lately, I’ve been a fan of a gang of mostly young folk interested in computer-brain-interfaces, who post mostly in the FullDive technology
