I went to a fascinating tumour immunology seminar this morning. It was a great talk in a very informal setting, a combination that naturally encourages lots of questions. Everyone from grad students to professors chipped in with their questions and comments, and especially with suggestions for new experiments. The speaker was very enthusiastic about some of these suggestions and started setting up informal meetings to continue the discussion; these started in the corridor outside the meeting room, even as the next group was filing in to take our place.
Under these circumstances, I thought it was best that I didn’t ask my own burning question:
Was “nucular index” a deliberate typo?
