Catalog type History
Provenance Dr. Howard Nash was a senior investigator in the National Institute of Mental Health's (NIMH) Laboratory of Molecular Biology for much of his long career. His early studies focused on ways to unravel mechanisms of DNA recombination and repair in bacteriophages. Later, he used fruit flies to probe how conciousness and anesthesia work on the molecular level. His research provided information on how our genes can affect our responses to anesthesia. In addition he was a well-respected mentor to many who are now leading in their fields of research. Nash was known for carrying this travel coffee mug all day, from meetings to the laboratory. Some of his colleagues could not picture him without it.
