When the national news media showed Dr. Wayne Marasco doing a benchwork while covering this story, I couldn't help but wonder whether he still really does some experiments himself or whether it was a staged act for public relations. Why? Because I know that most principal investigators, even if far less recognized than Marasco, are too lazy or think it's beneath them to do the laborious hands-on experiments by themselves. Most P.I.'s, of course, relegate such works to their lab technicians, students, or postdocs, instead. However, if Dr. Marasco still does, then, he has all the more respect and admiration from me. And perhaps it's because he still does experiments that he was able to make the much-publicized discovery. I would love to read responses from those who worked for or is familiar with him!
