A Filipina MD turned researcher

I feel so proud of being an online friend of Dr. Florita C. Henderson, another MD (worked as GP in England before she married her then boyfriend, an American). She now lives in Iowa, and has been working in Univ of I as a researcher. Her first paper where she is the first author (there have been papers where she had been a contributor, of course) is:

Proapoptotic effects of P. aeruginosa involve inhibition of surfactant phosphatidylcholine synthesis

Click on the link to see the abstract as featured in Journal of Lipid Research. Mabuhay ang mga Pinay!

Congratulations are also in order for her being a new mom since June, having given birth prematurely (probably out of work-related stress) to a tisay (Hay, inggit ako!)

I hope I can someday find a research-related job where I can apply my medical knowledge, so as to avoid a mediocre career. The main problem is my location...rural Maine? Malabo...
