We then bring in Dr. Asif Maroof, a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Kevin Eggan at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute to talk about his latest paper in Nature Neuroscience describing a gene implicated in ALS a.k.a Lou Gehrig’s disease. We finish off with our signature rant, this time about co-workers using up precious supplies. Enjoy!
