Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to the HighMag readers! Instead of an image today, here are a few words of thanks.

I'm thankful for so much this year...my amazing husband and his consistent "liking" of every single HighMag post on Facebook, my sweet 2-year old daughter who knows that I'll light up when she says "Mitosis, Mommy," and my scruffy dog who gives his silent support of all HighMag posts by napping at my feet while I write. I'm truly a lucky gal.

I'm thankful for you guys, for letting me amuse myself. I'm thankful that I get to share my love of beautiful cell biology images, thankful that you read my little nuggets of cell biology research, and thankful that you even like (sometimes) my attempts at wit. Again...lucky gal.

Science would be nowhere without those toiling away at the lab bench, debating at the chalk board, arguing for more grant money, teaching, and presenting their research. Thank you, scientists. And a special thank you to those scientists and journals who supported my use of their images on HighMag.

I would give you all a hug, but let's face it...deep down, we're all science nerds. So, an awkward handshake to say, "Thank you," and a promise that we'll get a beer together after the holidays.


  1. Thank YOU, Erin! Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!
