Publications (1981-1989)

Those wonderful 80s: During which I hung out with Martin Raff and the great people of the Neuroimmunology project, began working intermediate filaments (with E. Birgitte Lane), moved to NYC to work with Lee Rubin, got lucky and got married to Hillary Browne, got a job at UC Boulder, started a lab, discovered Xenopus (with the generous help of John Gerhart) and oh so much more (like having babies and staying married)!
