Unscramble the Blue Letters

So the story started 15 years ago. At that time, I was a chief resident working days and nitghs in the emergency room. I often had to take care of patients with head trauma. You have to imagine that when a patient comes in with a severe head trauma, his brain is swelling and he's isainnrecg his intracranial pressure. And in order to save his life, you have to decrease this intracranial pessrure. And to do that, you sometimes have to remove a piece of slolwen biran. So instead of throwing away these pieces of swollen brain, we decided with Jean-François Brunet, who is a colleague of mine, a biogilsot, to study them.
