An army of half-zombie rats on 7th floor of Hasselmo?

One of my colleagues on the seventh floor, Doris Taylor, is a finalist for the 2009 Time 100.

Time posts the following information about Dr. Taylor:


AGE: Unknown

OCCUPATION: Medical researcher

PREVIOUS APPEARANCES ON THE TIME 100: 0

PRO: By injecting baby-rat cells into a cell-free rat heart, Taylor helped create the first lab-grown heart. The hope is to eventually apply her findings to human organs.

CON: In the wrong hands, her research could allow a madman to create an army of half-zombie rats.
