Bio

I was a productive and successful neuroscientist until Augusta University took (and continues to take a series of unalwful and retaliatory actions because I blew the whistle (as required by state and federal laws) about crimes and other unlawful activities I witnessed in the aftermath of the death of a monkey named Ovechkin in my federally funded research program. The public can view information about this by googling "Augusta University, monkey".
