I have data.
Knock on wood.
Not complete data, or finished data, but data nonetheless. For you science geeks, my cell transfections worked, and the receptors that I transfected into them are showing up on staining. And the hormone treatments are making the receptors respond, which is also showing up on staining. This is a very, very good thing.
There's a problem with the mounting media, so I'm getting a lot of air bubbles on my slides, too many to take good pictures. So I won't really have data until that problem is taken care of. But I have hope. I also have a meeting with my lab group tomorrow morning, so the timing of this couldn't be better.
