in too deep

I’ve recently started my last (hopefully) thesis project on my way to my PhD. The project will be a study of the human gut microbiome; to analyze it, I’ll be embarking on an investigation of several months worth of human feces.  (And, if that high-level description grosses you out — be very afraid of the details that, in the name of basic human decency,  I’m witholding from this blog.)

In any case, I’ve been discussing this project a lot lately in the lab as I’ve tried to work out the logistics of this project.

I had no idea though how much notoriety I had gained until yesterday, after dinner with some friends.  As we were heading home, a labmate confessed, “Everytime I poop now, I think of you.”

Finally, my research is making a difference in someone’s life!
