My father was a science teacher, and back in high school, I was a bona fide science nerd. So much so, in fact, that after taking every AP science class on offer, I placed out of my science core curriculum in college, and haven’t thought about bio or chemistry in nearly fifteen years. Fortunately, my chosen career path does let me dabble in the sciences a bit from time to time. For the December issue of Boston Magazine, I edited our Top Docs cover package, which included a roundup of some of the most outstanding medical breakthroughs out of Boston in 2011. I interviewed dozens of fascinating scientists and physicians in the city, including our charming cover model, Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, who performed the country’s first full face transplants earlier this year.
