Fox's Trading Spouses on Nov. 17 featured a real-life scientist, Vered Solomon of Amgen (Thousand Oaks, CA). Solomon is co-author of the paper Regulation of Protein Catabolism by Muscle-Specific and Cytokine-Inducible Ubiquitin Ligase E3-II during Cancer Cachexia, Cancer Research 64, 8193-8198, November 15, 2004.
