Outreach Program: “Ciencia Al Tiro” (Science Immediately)

Outreach competition- the winners

Posted by on April 10th, 2014

Science outreach often involves using metaphors, where a real life object or situation is used to explain a complex scientific concept. Last December we launched an outreach competition, and we asked the Node readers to submit pairs of images: a photograph of a real life scene and an image of the scientific concept that it helps […]

Dicty World Race – 2014

Posted by on March 1st, 2014

The first ever World Dicty Race  will require cells to navigate a complex microfluidic maze to reach a pool of chemoattractant at the finish line.  Diffusion of the chemoattractant will create a spatial gradient to guide cells along the shortest path to the finish line. The challenge is to engineer Dicty or HL60 cells to […]

Slidecasts and videos from conference on congenital melanocytic nevus

Posted by on February 5th, 2014

Limited time offer! Read on.   As a developmental biologist, I have found my calling in applying what I have learned about normal embryogenesis to better understanding the pathophysiology of various human congenital malformations. Often these are rare diseases, and I work closely with patient associations devoted to those conditions and learning to live with […]

Colourful life of a fruit fly

Posted by on January 22nd, 2014

Those lucky scientists, who study organisms which allow live imaging experiments to be effectively performed, do not always appreciate what a luxury it is to watch the tissue of interest develop in time. Scientists who work on less accessible models that take long time to develop to term, look with envy on the beautiful movies […]
