Today is the completion of 25 years as a professor at Penn State ... literally to the day, I arrived driving through the night with plant cell cultures in tow ... to a lab that I had started up with two graduate students as I was finishing up the writing of my own thesis at Purdue: Curtis, W. R. 1988. Kinetics of phosphate limited growth of poppy plant suspension cultures. Ph.D. thesis, Purdue University, Lafayette, IN.

Thanks to all ... for the exceptional highs and dismal lows ... as the one cant appreciate one without the other.
