I find the waiver of "moral rights" requirement to be a real head scratcher. I was not aware that one could waive "moral rights."

"Of course, Caltech faculty will continue to publish in peer-reviewed academic journals, and publishers will continue to own the rights to their own formatted versions, but final manuscripts in the author's format will be available through Caltech."

Story
Tagline
Science, Scholarly Communication, and Mendeley
Introduction

I have been engaged in creating the future of science from the start. As a young child, I was fascinated by futuristic stories of science in Omni Magazine and Wired, leading me to get my PhD in the cutting edge field of stem cell biology. My first-hand experience with the inefficiencies and antiquities of "modern" academic research led me to join the team at Mendeley where I work on bringing modern network efficiencies to academic research.

I currently serve as the Head of Academic Outreach for Mendeley, a research management tool for collaboration and discovery.

Most recently, I did assay development for Genalyte, a molecular diagnostics startup. My work involved developing protein, DNA, and small molecule assays on their novel high-throughput assay platform.

I received my PhD from the Tulane University, where I studied under Dr. Darwin Prockop at the Tulane Center for Gene Therapy. My dissertation is entitled "Investigating the Role of Human Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in the Repair of Bone", in which I developed a model of multiple myeloma in mice and used it to test small molecule inhibitors of the interaction between multiple myeloma and bone precursor cells, promoting bone regeneration and repair of osteolytic lesions.
Specialties:

My work at Tulane involved self-guided experimental research on the relationship between Human Adult Stem Cells and cancer. My areas of expertise are bone biology, multiple myeloma, adult stem cells, and development of disease models.

I really wanted to like this place. It's modern American food in a sea of Asian and Indian, it has a brunch & it is in a nice location. However, it disappoints as much as it delights, and it never satisfies. When someone orders biscuits and gravy for brunch, they're not interested in eating light, yet they serve one biscuit with a side of fruit. The food is well prepared, but I always leave hungry. Why have a comfort food menu and tiny dishes? I would understand if this was haute cuisine, but it's presented simply as well. It's not a bad thing when the worst someone has to say is that they want more of you, but I don't know if I can go back anymore. I'd literally have to order two entrees just for me.

Went in because it was the closest place open at 4 PM on a Monday afternoon. No one was in there, but how bad could an Asian place on Castro St. be? I don't know if they recently changed hands or what, but I hadn't had lunch, was starving, and had to throw the beef curry away uneaten after tasting it.

Tasty and creative, but they over dilute & under pour. Rye looks a lot like a quality cocktail bar, and the bartenders can talk the talk, but if you pay attention, you'll notice that they shake your drinks a bit longer than usual and they underpour the liquor. The result is still a tasty drink of the correct volume, just a little watered down and lacking body. You may also find that whereas three drinks is quite enough some places, here you can have 4 or 5 and only be approaching a buzz. No doubt this is appreciated by the management, but probably less so by patrons expecting a drink they've had elsewhere to be as good. I'd expect their liquor distributors are less than thrilled as well.
