Reasons to be Cheerful..Part 3

The productvity (in terms of publications) of the UT/ORNL Center for Molecular Biophysics has doubled over the past year: from about 20 publications per year to about 40. And so we build, adding more bricks to the edifice resting on the great laws of science, laws that I see in "The Settle Bed" by Seamus Heaney (above):

"....an inheritance

Upright, rudimentary, unshiftably planked

In the long ago, yet willable forward

Again and again and again"
