Jonathan Freedman, Professor of Pharmacology at Northeastern University, studies how neurotransmitters receptors modulate ion channels in the central nervous system. His particular interests are dopamine receptors, because of dopamine's possible involvement in schizophrenia and other mental disorders, and opiate receptors.    Jon spends much of his day working with morphine-dependent rats, an all too common workplace phenomena for many of us fellow classmates.  Looking at the positive side he states "At least I don't have to deal with lawyers."   Click here to visit his Labs web site.

Happy Ending

 

Mary Shoemaker weds Stewart Mittnacht, Jr.  April 10, 2004

 

Mary Shoemaker Mittnacht (formerly Case) and Stewart Mittnacht, Jr. had either one of the shortest or longest of courtships, depending on how it is viewed.  They first met in 1972, when Stewart then a junior at Princeton University interviewed Mary then a junior at Princeton High School as a prospective American Field Service exchange student.  The interview was successful in all respects Mary went with AFS to Morocco in 1973, and Mary and Stewart became fast friends, then fell in love and dated for about a year.  The relationship fell victim to distance and what then seemed like an enormous age gap, as Mary went off to Harvard and Stewart graduated from Princeton (Ivy League rivalries had nothing to do with it) and started working in Philadelphia.  28 years passed with no contact.

 

Then on Christmas Day, 2003, Mary and her sister, Barbara Shoemaker (also a Princeton alumna) stumbled across an old picture of Stewart.  In response to Marys nostalgic I wonder whats hes doing and how he is, Barbara found Stewarts email address on the Princeton alumni website and goaded Mary into sending him a note, which he received when he returned to the office on January 5.  A few emails and phone calls, a get-together in New York the weekend of January 10,  and the 28-year hiatus was over.  They married in New York on April 10, and will reside there.
