Charles Hoffman joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Charles Hoffman has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says, not tersely:

I am a molecular geneticist who uses the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe to study cyclic nucleotide signaling. I am so focused on my research that I rarely notice how long my hair has grown. Every year or two, my daughter insists on cutting it so that it does not reach my waste.  I have come to see my hair as part of my “brand”, otherwise I’d be just another short Jewish yeast geneticist.
