Nick Negretti’s comments in the accompanying news item remind me of why my job is such a pleasure. Nick’s enthusiasm for his work and his excitement about his project studying how Campylobacter jejuni manipulates its host cells to cause disease in humans is undeniable. It is also a credit to his project supervisor, Dr. Konkel. It should be apparent that Nick and our other SMB students are the driving force of our research enterprise. Supporting their efforts by providing research funds and stipends will ensure that these young eager students can translate basic science into cures of disease.
