the human body fascinates me .. which is why I went into the medical field .. but a coder wasn't my first choice.. bad past decisions kept me from pursing my original goal in pharmacology but oh well help where you can.
One would think that we would have most of the body figured out by now but thanks to people like you we're finding out more and more each day. And yea it's hard to get funding for research unless you can explain how it will benefit someone in a practical application
