      Well technically speaking, I don’t look at drugs inside *people*. I look at drugs that will one day be put into people, but I look at them in mice and rats. I get sent my samples (e.g. a mouse brain) in the post from my collaborators in London. I don’t like having to work on animal tissue, but we really need this information in order to help people with terrible brain diseases, so for now there’s no other choice.
