"One of my earliest CSH memories was a phage meeting, 1983. I was a young grad student in the Netherlands, working on phage Mu. For the first time I went to the USA, and I met all these great heroes, whose work I knew so well from the literature. Walking with my dinner plate in Blackford Hall I was talking to Nick Cozzarelli, and sat down with him at a table where some others were seated." entire post

"The Bacterial Genetics Course in July 1977 occurred at a time when DNA technology was beginning to bring geneticists together. My experience at CSHL was the first time I had viewed genetics as a way of thinking rather than a collection of curiosities" entire post

"I was absolutely astonished to see my face on the CSHL Symposia website. I was just 25, and the 1978 CSH Symposium was my first EVER scientific meeting (I was a 4th year graduate student with John Cairns at the time). I am now 51 and often think about that meeting as it was a huge turning point in my life..." entire post

"Half of my sample was lost because I literally poured it into my mouth. Fortunately, I took what was left in my tube, so it was not a complete loss. You know you have the old adage of my dog ate my homework and I this was the first time I had to use the “I ate my fly-brains” excuse….." entire post

"When I came first to CSHL, fortunately, I met Richard Roberts and I realized the importance of splicing. Afterwards, I was involved in a project regarding adenoviral RNA organization into infected cells. That investigation derived from the conclusion that splicing factors were recruited to active sites of transcription in vivo." entire post
