Abstract

I was a MD, Ph.D. student with Dr. Nicolini during the late 1970s and early 1980s at Temple University.
As a newly admitted medical student, I still remember engaging in small talk with a former lab member turned dental student, Elliot Milgram, while anxiously awaiting my interview with Dr. Nicolini for a summer research position in the laboratory. My anxiety only grew as I heard what suspiciously sounded like loud shouting from behind the closed doors of Dr. Nicolini’s office, all the way on the opposite side of the laboratory. Elliott saw the concern on my face, and said, “Don’t worry. That’s just Dr. Nicolini and his best friend, Frank Kendall, having a scientific discussion.” Judging the look on my face, Elliott decided to give me some parting advice: “Look, all you need to do well in this laboratory is to be ready to stand your ground. If Dr. Nicolini raises his voice, you just raise your voice back louder with all of the reasons why you think you are right.”
