I was just wondering if there was anyone here with some background in biology that would like to chat. I've been reading a lot of papers lately on the effects of lifestyle and alternative medicine on the etiology of UC, and would really like someone to discuss things with, such as experimental design, statistical analysis (which I'm weak in), interpretation of results in context of other studies, etc. Nothing formal, just someone to bounce ideas and criticisms off of once in a while. I talk to my fiance about it, but he's a computer engineer, and can't help me out much, lol.
I'd be interested in discussing the merits and weaknesses of various popular "remedies" like the Specific Carbohydrate Diet too.
I feel like a long time ago I saw someone in here who said he was a biologist of some sort, but I don't know if he posts any more, and I can't remember his name. A search returns nothing, so maybe I'm just crazy.
