SRBR - Day 1

I just had nice seafood dinner while watching the sunset over the water with this guy, down in sunny Florida. Readers of this blog have met him before, here and here.

I also saw Erik Herzog, who is familiar to all of you from, e.g., here, here, here and here. I heard him give a presentation about the ways to get an NSF grant in the circadian field.

I am about to see Chris Steele as well.

I attended a Memorial Symposium on Melatonin in honor of Aaron Lerner.

And talked to several people about PLoS already - I am REALLY doing my job.

I am suprised how many people recognize me and are happy to see me - last time I attended SRBR meeting was six years ago.
