A day in the cleanroom

Posted by on June 28th, 2016

Hello guys, I am a PhD student from University of Strathclyde, UK. My PhD career has two parts: microfabrication and neural recordings. With the help of novel semiconductor fabrication techniques, I can make micro-level devices for neuroscience applications such as neural recordings and optogenetics. The whole fabrication process is done in the cleanroom which can[…]

Electrifying news for embryologists

Posted by on June 17th, 2014

Electroporation: an efficient technique for embryologists During embryonic development, the specification of different cell types giving rise to the future organs involves a precise spatiotemporal regulation of cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation. Studying these processes requires tools to manipulate gene expression locally in the developing embryo.To this aim, embryologists have widely used the technique of[…]
