An Ode to Mac Biochem

Biochemistry and BDC,
The perfect dynamic duo;
But what is even better than that, you see?
McMaster Biochemistry & Biomedical Sciences Society — BBSS and McMaster Biomedical Discovery & Commercialization Society, much kudos.

Women in STEM are not an anomaly,
Nor they should be pushed aside;
One does not need to give a homily
To appreciate their contributions with pride.

From DHFR and EPSP synthase
To Lon protease and cryo-EM, hurrah;
With all these lit projects all just but a phase,
En fuego, n’est-ce pas?

I must express my gratitude before I disappear,
For all the support and the lack of alopecia;
Thus I am tempted to whisper in her ear:
“Bye, Felicia.”
