Brian Foy Double Take

I read a summary of an article recently on slashdot that stated (emphasis mine):
A U.S. vector biologist appears to have accidentally written virological history simply by having sex with his wife after returning from a field trip to Senegal. A study just released in Emerging Infectious Diseases suggests that the researcher, Brian Foy of Colorado State University, passed to his wife the Zika virus, an obscure pathogen that causes joint pains and extreme fatigue.
Huh? Brian Foy? I googled for him, and not only is he a Brian Foy, his name is Brian D. Foy.

He's not our brian d foy, though, unless he's been living a secret double life.

    As listed on his website's People I am not section:

    Brian D. Foy, Assistant Professor, Department of Microbiology, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Colorado State University

    So he's not officially living a double life, unless it's just to throw people off the track.

      You have to admit, however, that if you have to have a list of people you aren't, at least some of those people are making headlines in colorful ways.

    Every time I have sex it feels like a historic event.
