Ground Zero

When I decided to go to Law School instead of Medical School everyone thought that I was crazy. “You have a degree in Microbiology Simone, what in the world does Microbiology have to do with the law?” I scratched my head feebly and shrugged my shoulders. “I don’t know,” I would say. However, I knew that I wanted to be a lawyer for a very long time. It wasn’t until my Uncle acquired HIV/AIDS when I was fifteen years old that my interests in science and medicine arose. So, I decided to attend the University of Texas at Austin and begin my quest for scientific knowledge. What is a microorganism? Why are they so hard to fight sometimes? Why do people get so sick? After four years I have learned that the answers to my questions have only bred more questions, and fewer answers. Now that I am in Law School I have learned just how much the law shapes every facet of life, including health and science. I have created this blog to essentially bring the two worlds together: law and microbiology.



  1. This is quit interesting, perhaps you are on to something here. Until recently, I had not heard of the relate to microbiology, that is, not until a few days ago when I read an article on microbiology processes. Apparently, there are pending patent cases by bio companies and pharmaceutical labs that are wanting the courts to decide in their favor in a legal case that includes the use of certain biological processes in a product.
