    Perhaps Sheri is responsible….and she paid the ultimate price. Not wearing a lab coat especially when working with a highly flammable chemical was foolish. She had a chemistry degree so she should have known better. I was a young researcher once and used to get pissed off at having to wear bulky protective clothing, eye glasses, and not being able to sip my coffee between experiments (food was banned in the lab). I learned quickly after having my urine come back positive for high tritium, that lab safety is not to be taken lightly. Who knows what else I have ingested during my lab career? Lab safety is foremost a personal choice, and no one can force you to wear protective clothing if you choose to work after hours. When I was a grad student, I seldom wore a lab coat on the weekend, and you can bet, I drank coffee next to my protein purification column.
