Wong's Texas state of mind
Stephen Wong (left), the bioinformatics leader who left Harvard for Houston and took nearly two dozen lab colleagues with him, talks about his new role in a Houston Chronicle story.
"Texas is a whole change in mind-set," Wong, 49, told the Chronicle. "We want to do something new. The whole idea is, we don't want to do something small. And this is the place to come and do that."
The exact place, as in lab space, is significant, too, according to the story:
"For decades, Houston has been known for its leading-edge heart research. Yet, it is a clear sign of the times that Wong, a star recruited by The Methodist Hospital from Harvard University earlier this summer, will claim a large chunk of the hospital's two floors of lab space formerly used by legendary heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey."
