After a one-month hiatus, I’m back to blogging. Despite the lack of updates here, the past four weeks have been more story-worthy than usual. Below were the highlights:

  • I fell victim to the January Boston rhinovirus epidemic.
  • I made three trips to New York, including a visit to wd-50 and TEDxManhattan.
  • I’m back to experiments in the lab. I found out about the ProPraline project, which shows that scientific research into chocolate is legit. I’m also making videos of one aspect of the bacterial biofilm reproductive process.

In addition to the above, a steady stream of lab tours and other encounters has laid the foundation for future serendipity.
