Hi,
My name is Liz and I have been living in the Netherlands for the past 14 years researching immunology, learning a new culture and putting down roots. My interests include making highly amateur films, hiking (proud Appalachian Trail Through Hiker) and just playing with web opportunities (such as InfoBarrel) and setting up my own blogs (The IBD Immunologist and The Beneficial Bacteria Site). 
Don't hesitate to leave me comments.
