Advocating FOR grads and postdocs: the Future of Research symposium

Posted by on August 27th, 2014

You may have noticed a recent trend in the perception of the graduate and postdoctoral experience, be it in the state of our mental health; or perceived career goal of “academia-or-bust”; or maybe you’re just keeping your pulse on leading US academics warning of the imminent dangers of a flawed biomedical research system or the[…]

Report on “The Making of a Vertebrate – RIKEN CDB Symposium 2013”

Posted by on March 22nd, 2013

When your model organism of choice is medaka, and you spend your mornings trying to rid your embryos of their tough chorion, you comfort yourself thinking that one day all the hard work will result in A) a paper, and/or, B) a visit to Japan.
