    Metals in Biology @ Duquesne University

    Want to thank my hosts Mike van Stipdonk and John Stolz from Duquesne University who put on the Metals in Biology Symposium last week. Also heard two wonderful talks from Aaron Barchoswky at Pitt about how arsenic effects stem cell mitochondria, and from Vadim Gladyshev at Harvard about selenoprotein genomics and longevity. My first time in P-burg!
