Short answer- “Of course”. Longer answer- “Now, more than one”.
We take a brief moment from our mayhem and merriment to publicly congratulate our own Eric on successfully defending his dissertation on Friday night, meaning that he now holds a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics. Yup, he’s certifiably dense.
Given that his advanced degree is from Michigan State (B!1!G!), we’re still trying to determine if his researched was centered on the particular kind of thermodynamics that East Lansing is known for.
On his behalf, I’m also going to give a shout out to Ken. As is usually the case, he was a part of Eric’s process far beyond the call of duty by serving as a reader/reviewer of dissertation. In unrelated news, Ken’s insomnia seems to have been cured. Funny that.
For those of you keeping track at home, that brings the number of PhD’s on staff to two; Eric’s in Physics joins Charles’ in Astronomy. I guess we can now fully attest that writing here sometimes is rocket surgery.
With one more staffer (cough) starting his own doctoral work in the fall, future roundtables might just be a bit more interesting.
Congrats, Eric… and thanks for using small words so the rest of us can follow along.
Welcome to the latest edition of Weekend Wonderings. Take a minute, grab whatever you drink on a Sunday afternoon/evening and let’s carry on. This will provide a nice break from lawn work, leaf raking, whatever, for you.
The researchers at The James at it again. They are working on a new treatment with breast cancer..
The trial involves targeted treatment going after an aggressive form of breast cancer, and it could be a game-changer.
“This could really revolutionize the way women are treated with breast cancer,” said Dr. Erin Macrae, of the OSU Comprehensive Breast Center.
This is another example of the research processes being turned into practical treatment processes. Yes, If Not For Ohio State..
