    Gainful Employment

    Since many people have checked in with me to see how things have been going, I wanted to mention that today is, in fact, my first day on my new job. I’m very happy to report this, both for the obvious reasons, and because the research I’ll be doing looks to be very interesting and complex, and… Read More

    An AMA

    Some behind-the-scenes trouble with WordPress left me unable to log in to the site until now, but I wanted to mention that at this very moment, I’m doing an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit’s Science section. Drop by and see how quickly I can keep up the typing! Read More

    A Few Days Off (Bonus Blog Topic Thread)

    I wanted to let people know that posting will resume here this coming Wednesday – I’ll be traveling, and I probably won’t have time to put up any entries. If something big happens, I’m sure I’ll work something in, but otherwise, I’ll see everyone on the 19th! In the interim, I’d be glad to hear… Read More

    A Quick News Update

    I wanted to mention something going on back behind the curtain here, namely that my employer and I have parted ways. A number of my other colleagues are going through similar experiences as things reorganize, but for my own part, I’m looking into several new opportunities in the Boston/Cambridge area. And that’s just the place… Read More

    Cold-Weather Food: Rindsrouladen

    I’ve been thinking about a recipe or two to post here, but I’ve already covered several favorites over the years (do a Google search starting with the phrase site:blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline and then the word recipe; that’ll call them up). They get used frequently around Pipeline HQ here – the gingersnap cookies were made… Read More

    End of a Year

    This is my last workday of the year – I’ll be posting occasionally into the new year, but some of those will be recipes (as is traditional around here). If there’s any big scientific news, though, I’ll rouse myself and talk about it. Today I’m just heading into the lab to get things wrapped up… Read More

    Upcoming Holidays

    I’m busy trying to get things wrapped up in the lab today – I’ll be taking the rest of the week off after this, and posting here irregularly, if at all. After Thanksgiving I’ll be getting into some of the scientific gift ideas posts and book recommendations as well. Thanksgiving will be pretty much our… Read More

    Two Side Dish Recipes

    It’s Labor Day weekend here in the US, so I’ve had the day off. As I sometimes do here around holidays, I thought I’d put up another kitchen-chemistry prep – two, in fact, that work together: grilled tomato salsa and grilled onion pickle. The recipes are adapted from those in Steve Raichlen’s Barbecue Bible, which… Read More

    August Day Off

    If my workplace and my commute are any indication, about half the biopharma world is on vacation. Let’s take this August Friday off and reconvene on Monday! Those not at work, carry on, and those at work, well, at least you can get to the equipment more easily. See everyone then. . . Read More

    Day Off

    Rather than speculate about the UK this morning, which does seem to be the thing to do, I’m going to plead illness instead. I’m fighting off a sinus infection, which I could certainly have done without, and I’m functioning at less than peak levels. The frontiers of sciences are going to have to do without… Read More
