serial killer cells

24 Oct

My heart, I think, skipped a beat when I watched this video.  (Seriously, watch it–your day will be brighter.)  And of course I could not be more proud to get to learn at the same institution as these physician-scientists.  It really is a magical place…

I am not a scientist.  If anything, science is probably my weakest subject, something I’ve really struggled with while being in med school.  My hat is off to my fellow colleagues who possess not only the type of raw talent needed to be leaders in modern medical science (to think, infecting healthy cells with the HIV virus to kill cancer!), but also the passion.  It’s not a glamorous life but, every now and then, you get to do something like this.

    Very cool! People are so amazing. And you’re right, our classmates are ridiculously smart and awesome- can’t wait to see how everyone makes history so I can say “I knew them!”
