I am gay and I am a molecular biologist. //
My lab studies how sperm and eggs end up with the right number of chromosomes (and how they sometimes don’t). More specifically, we study homologous recombination during meiosis. I’m gay and have been out professionally and in private life since early grad school days in the ’80s. Miscellaneous trivia: My husband and I met on leap day and got married on leap day eight years later, so we have an anniversary every four years whether we need one or not.
