Carl Sandburg


I ASKED the professors who
        teach the meaning of life to tell
        me what is happiness.
And I went to famous executives who
        boss the work of
        thousands of men.
They all shook their heads and gave me a smile
        as though I was trying
        to fool with them
And then one Sunday afternoon
        I wandered out
        along the Desplaines river
And I saw a crowd of Hungarians
        under the trees with their women
        and children and a keg of beer
        and an accordion.

Welcome to my page!

My name is Hegedûs. Tamás Hegedûs (008).

I am a biologist doing research in the fields of biochemistry, cell biology, and computational biology.

My research is so interesting and exciting that it would take all my life if I do not (over)compensate. Therefore I try to enrich my private life with some other very exciting activies, such as playing music, biking, rock climbing, etc.

Although I do not have time for blogging, I like to express myself by posting poems. They reflect my feelings not just on a day to day basis, but over a longer period of my life.

If you are interested mostly in my professional life, browse the lower row of the menu. Otherwise try the top row, too.

Enjoy visiting me and feel free to give some feedback!
