C6H12O6 is the molecular formula for glucose. Glucose is a monosaccharide that plays a major role in energy production via cell metabolism. Glucose is delicious and sweet, and you need it to surivive, but too much glucose can make you obese and give you Type II diabetes. I picked it as the namesake for my blog because metabolic rate is the cornerstone of my field, comparative physiology.
I am Michelle, a second-year grad student in an ecophysiology lab. Physiologically, I have an overactive sympathetic nervous system. Personally, I am agoraphobic and kind of a nerd. In my free time I blog and drink tea. Yeah, that’s about it.
