I am a molecular biologist with an interest in neuroscience. I have a decent understanding of molecular biology, cellular biology, developmental biology and genetics. I’m not a neuroscientist. I am no longer involved in basic research, however I do enjoy many scientific topics. Outside of LGBT research, I try to keep up with research on autism, climate change, kidney disease, breast cancer and aging. Because I’m not getting any younger.
I do have many LGBT friends and I support full equality for all people. My interest in science is the geek in me. My moral side does not need scientific proof of anything to believe in equal rights.
So why not reveal who I am? It’s the Internet and I’m an introvert. I don’t need Fred Phelps showing up at my door or where I work. I’m trying to just be the messenger for scientific publications. If I can help people understand how science is done and what we can learn from it, I’m good.
