Kyle Janek's resignation from the State Senate earlier this year has caused a big scramble for his seat.
Everyone's gunning for his job. Janek, though, has found a job of his own -- he'll be schmoozing for a health-care company that runs the "blood test of the future."
Biophysical, based in Austin, is one of the leaders in the emerging field of biomarkers -- expensive tests for well-off patients that can detect diseases before symptoms show up.
Here's Martha Stewart blogging about her test, done at the exclusive Canyon Ranch resort.
Janek, an anesthesiologist, will be a V-P for "business development," which certainly sounds broad enough to cover anything.
Maybe he can meet Martha!!
