This is what happens...

...when I am your professor.

On tap for next semester's Biochemistry II lab (primed for record enrollment!):

Extracting and measuring the cholesterol and fat profiles in traditional v. grass fed eggs.

Measuring blood glucose using chemistry. Measuring cholesterol in HDL and LDL.

Using tagged sugar to track how yeast breaks it down and uses it to build itself.

Using tagged glucose and tagged fructose to understand how yeast breaks down these two sugars differently.

Measuring the antioxidant potential of whole fruit and fruit juice.

Building the ultimate antioxidant drink from fruits and vegetables.

And finally - designing their own laboratory procedures and having the other lab sections test them (suckers!).

...but first they all need to pass this semester's class. Time to grade a quiz!


  1. Wow! That sounds like an awesome lab. I want to be in it!


  2. Love it. Can I take your class online?!

  3. Hope things are going well with your class!

  4. You never came back after grading your quiz!!

  5. Hi, My colleague Dr. Zane of Harmonic Innerprizes is a certified nutritional specialist and I am trying to help him write for various health blogs. I'm contacting you in regards to your health blog at Do you accept guest blog posts from professional health specialists? If so, I can have him write a ultra-relevant blog post that we feel would be relevant to your blog and hopefully beneficial for your readers.

    If you're open to our request, just let us know. We'll send you a post and will be happy to share it with our followers on G+ & Twitter.

    If you have any requirements to write for your blog, we're open.
