Ad Majorem Annae Gloriam

A good day

Today was a good day, even though it started at 7am and is still not over at almost 2am the next day. I worked from 9 to 4 at one job, then from 5 to 10 at the other. HOwever, tomorrow and Thursday I work from home, that is a good thing. I have about two pounds of articles to read and digest, that is the bad thing. Nonetheless, my car survived driving through hail and downpour and high wind and flash floods yesterday, with only two scratches. That is definitely a good thing.

I am worried that I have contaminated cell culture I developed today (made the growth medium all by myself, from calculations to actual making), but I will see on Friday. And I perpetually see lysed cells instead of live ones. This's got to stop.

Now, go to http://www.oeaw.ac.at/kal/sh/index.htm and listen to Demodokos' song. *swoons*

I hate the science of alphabet soup. Immunology is full of abbreviations, and it is almost impossible to keep in your head what all these TNF-alpha, TNF-beta, IFN-gamma, IL-1, IL-6, etc.

I am reading a ton of articles on septic shock, and use of hydrocortisone in treatment of septic shock. I need to find a good pharmacokinetic profile of hydrocortisone. The blood concentrations at steady state and immediately after IV injection and try to figure out something. I need to have the rough idea of the experiment by Friday.

It will, hopefully, get me my first publication, but it is going to be hard work, and a lot of it. It would be some much easier to be a lab technician and not a pursuant of a doctorate degree, but tech's life is completely devoid of glory and glamour...
