Jumpin’ Ginger Therapy!

Ever had a day where you almost wished you hadn’t got up in the morning? Where your computer crashes, your email doesn’t work, you get dumped with 100 different irrelevant bureaucratic busy-tasks, and you wonder why you didn’t become a post-office clerk? If this sounds familiar, you need Ginger Therapy!

What could possibly lift one’s mood more than such a welcome at the end of a lousy day?

About Steve Caplan

I am a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska where I mentor a group of students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers working on endocytic protein trafficking. My first lablit novel, "Matter Over Mind," is about a biomedical researcher seeking tenure and struggling to overcome the consequences of growing up with a parent suffering from bipolar disorder. Lablit novel #2, "Welcome Home, Sir," published by Anaphora Literary Press, deals with a hypochondriac principal investigator whose service in the army and post-traumatic stress disorder actually prepare him well for academic, but not personal success. Novel #3, "A Degree of Betrayal," is an academic murder mystery. "Saving One" is my most recent novel set at the National Institutes of Health. Now IN PRESS: Today's Curiosity is Tomorrow's Cure: The Case for Basic Biomedical Research (CRC PRESS, 2021). https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/entity/author/B006CSULBW? All views expressed are my own, of course--after all, I hate advertising.

    That’s the great thing about dogs. No matter how dreadful your day has been, they’ll welcome you home with uncoditional love. Our Jack Russell, Canis secundus croxorum, jumps on me first thing in the morning as if to say – hey! It’s a brand new day! Sure to be full of fun!!!
