Publications (1975-1982)

During which I go to Penn State, embrace biophysics, work with Alex Keith and Wally Snipes on a membrane-bounded bacteriophage. Move to LA to go to CalTech for graduate school. Join the amazing Bob Stroud to work on acetylcholine receptor structure, moved with him and Dave McKay to UCSF, and met the great neuobiology people there (Zach Hall, Reg Kelly, John Heuser, Josh Sanes, Neil Nathanson, Jeff Miller and others), who helped me re-engage with science.
