Univ. of Athens, Dept of Chemistry: we are out of money! so...I got an idea...to write a book

no money for research and teaching...so time to think and write...


In Greece, we are out of money...In the Uni where I work, no state subsidy has been received for the calendar years 2013 and 2014...It is simply a miracle how we can still teach students without any subsidies for consumables (on paper the Chem. Dept of Univ. of Athens should have received Euros 70 k for 2013 and another Euros 70k for 2014... in reality zero - 0 !!!).

In the lab, I need to train one PhD student, 5 MSc students (here MSc is 2 years - equivalent to British MPhil) and 3 final year undergraduate.

Our solvents / chemicals are going to run out in few weeks. So, we are all going to have lots and lots of spare time...

This morning, while having a shower...I got a book idea... To write a book about food and pharma...To write a book to vindicate the current way of thinking that everybody is running after statins with no reasoning...

The book is going to attack statins...


What do you think?
