Well, it’s happened again. My work has been written up in Science but I am not mentioned. I’m actually not that concerned this time — we’re going to submit the paper for publication soon. I’ve been telling myself (and other people) that this thing we’ve ben working on (all the while being very cryptic about what this thing exactly is) is important. Every once in a while, I wonder if I’ve just been fooling myself. The fact that this work has been written up in Science the day after the paper was presented at the Montreal Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections suggests to me that it is, indeed, important.
