Announcements Cancer Medicine Science

It’s science time!

I forgot to mention yesterday (although I did on Twitter) that I’m currently in Denver, where I will be attending the 100th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), as I do almost every year at this time. I hope to see, as Isis would put it, some hot, hot science over the next three and a half days. In between sessions, I’ll be putting the finishing touches on my Challenge Grant, seeing old friends, and possibly even blogging. The frequency depends upon (1) how many old friends I see and (2) how good or crappy the wifi is at the Colorado Convention Center.

In the meantime, although the last time I tried this it was a complete flop (PZ, I’m not, apparently), if anyone’s interested in a meetup between now and my last night in Denver (Tuesday), drop me an e-mail.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

Denver, Monday Night, Beer, Downtown?

What part of town are you staying in? I got Evolutionary Medicine and the bad parts of Osteopathy on my mind.

And beer.

Hey…I’m in and I am one of Harry’s Profs. Let me know. Beer is always good

I’m downtown at the Colorado Convention Center right now, and staying at a nearby hotel. If my mentor from the 1990s isn’t available (he’s going home tomorrow; so it’s tonight or never), I’ll be free.

Where’s a good place for beer?

Chip and I are game if you are. Wynkoop Brewery is a good one, 1634 18th street. You take the train to union station and walk from there. Email me with some notice and some other SBM people may join.

We will be down there around 7:30 to eat and drink. If ya can make it great if not we will still be eating and drinking and talking about you
