Testimonial

During the Summer I spend as a Grass fellow I was surrounded by some of the most creative and productive neuroscientists (Scott Fraser, George Augustine, Joseph Margiotta) in North America. John Rubin was our clever and kind adviser. He arranged meetings for us with Steve Kuffler, John Nichols, Ken Muller, Steve Treistman and many other luminaries. Mary Grass visited almost weekly to chat and keep us aware we were part of the Grass "Family". That summer I conceived and wrote my first NIH grant that was funded shortly thereafter. My son Peter was born in Falmouth Hospital. We throughly thrashed the Neurobiology Course Softball Team. And Steve Zottoli and I wrote a one act play "Protein Synthesis is your Friend" (you can guess who was the happy little ribosome).

Testimonial

Being a Grass Fellow was one of the best experiences of my scientific career. I was a Grass Fellow at Woods Hole completing my thesis experiments on the crayfish giant motor synapse. At the time, I had the opportunity to meet with the reigning experts of this preparation, Ed Furshpan and David Potter. They were very encouraging and helped me overcome a problem I was having in interpreting the results. My work on the giant motor synapse was subsequently published in Nature (Margiotta JF and B Walcott (1983) Conductance and dye permeability of a rectifying electrical synapse. Nature 305:52-56. (Cover article)). My experiences that summer as a Grass Fellow including those leading to the discussions with Furshpan and Potter certainly facilitated the publication of that work.
