I’m leaving for ASH 2010 on Thursday! Woooo! As I mentioned before, this is the 52nd annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology. I’m super excited for the opportunity to attend and blog from this event! Daily updates will be posted here on AlbinoMouse, while blogs from a few key events will be posted to the Stem Cell Network blog.
Links to check out this week:
- Peter from Science of Blogging discusses why all scientists should blog. I could not agree more! Before this blog, I was deathly sick of the daily routine that is research. Writing about science really helped me to rediscover those things about science that I love the most. Plus, I’ve met a lot of cool people and gotten some pretty neat opportunities as well!
- Continuing the tale of cool biologists: Side-Line Magazine reports that electronic music artist Sara Noxx is teaming up with forensic biologist Mark Benecke for a cover of “Where the Wild Roses Go”. Dr. Benecke is a high profile consultant who has previously worked on identification of Hitler’s skull. He’s also a punk musician on the side….!
- And now on the topic of rockstar biologists, did you know that Bad Religion frontman Greg Graffin has taught classes in evolutionary biology at UCLA? Thanks to DiscoverMagazine!
All for now. Next time you hear from me I’ll be in Florida!
