Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

comment intravenous (IV) in the tail vein of an anaesthetized mouse
@nico zoology was a simple replace of animals as it didn't exist. Cardiology is just going on the tag-wiki description - "The study of the physiology and pathology of the cardiovascular system". I agree that they aren't fully right yet though, any suggestions? =S
