Viet Le, Ph.D.
I have a Ph.D. from the Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry at Brown University. At the heart of my research is a fascination with how cells communicate via communication systems known as signal transduction pathways. Inspired by conversations with my father about the complex details of my research using a fruit fly model to study a rare human skeletal disorder, I started this blog as a way to foster communication between the scientific community and the general public.
This blog is dedicated to my father, who always wished that I had studied journalism. This is my compromise.
Youssef Rizk, Esq. (The Juice Bar contributor)
I am an Attorney and Litigation Consultant who specializes in evidence and visual communication strategy at mediation, arbitration, or trial. I currently work in a wide variety of practice areas including: products liability, personal injury, insurance, medical malpractice, toxic tort, business/commercial litigation, collections, civil rights, intellectual property, and high-profile criminal prosecution. In spite of being an attorney, I have always had a strong interest in science (I wanted to be a doctor since I was seven), but my limited aptitude for lab work proved problematic (ask anyone that’s seen me use a pipette). Conceptually, I still find science fascinating, so I remain passionate about exploring the relationship between science and law.
My blog entries are dedicated to my mother who always wished I would become a doctor. This is my compromise.
