News from the recent conference. Dr Wenk is a colleague and lab-neighbor. He gets in the news a lot, check out his homepage online and you’ll see. He’s done research on gingko biloba, chocolate, caffeine and knows a lot about a wide range of issues. He’s a nice guy, a good teacher and researcher, a rare trifecta for profs. So don’t bombard him with e-mails if he sounds glib here. In his defense he was in the airport and pretty tired when he was interviewed.
