Saturday Morning Silliness: A Speech to Remeber

With his daily music posts, Genomic Repairman has clearly demonstrated that scientists can possess a great love of music. What many younguns in science and most folks outside science many not realize is that under that crusty, grumpy, “why are you rafting instead of doing experiments” facade, many scientists dabble in making music. I’ve encountered at least a half dozen full professors who play an instrument and/or sing-sometimes even in public. So I guess it should come as no huge surprise that current NIH Director Francis Collins has a musical side too.

He also has a sense of humor, as evidenced by the musical commencement speech he’s given a few times.

I wonder if he’s written a new version “Their Way” for his position at the NIH…
