The Tails of Fate

Posted by on January 18th, 2018

The epic journey of embryogenesis begins with a set of maternal instructions. These instructions are in the form of transcribed mRNA, some even translated into proteins and ready for action. However, many of the critical maternal mRNAs are inactive and must be delivered to the right cell and activated at the right time to encode[…]

Wellcome Trust 4-yr (1+3) PhD Programme in Stem Cell Biology & Medicine

Posted by on December 19th, 2013

Organisation: Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute Studentship starting: October 2014 Application Deadline: 10th January 2014 Interviews: 30th & 31st January 2014 Stem cells are defined by the dual capacity to self-renew and to differentiate. These properties sustain homeostatic cell turnover in adult tissues and enable repair and regeneration throughout the lifetime[…]

Advantages of exposure

Posted by on December 11th, 2013

I was fortunate go get funding and support to travel to California during my graduate student period. While some similarities between the Norwegian and Californian west coasts made me feel vaguely familiar, the biggest change and the most exciting part of my visit at UCLA has been the inspiration and scientific maturation that comes from[…]

Postdoc and PhD positions: Growth control in Drosophila

Posted by on March 20th, 2013

Post-doctoral and PhD positions are available in the lab of Savraj Grewal, University of Calgary, Canada. (https://www.facebook.com/The.Grewal.Lab). The main focus of the lab is to study the control of growth using Drosophila as a model system.

Becoming a confident scientific speaker

Posted by on March 9th, 2013

Like needles in a haystack, interesting speakers that bring charisma and rock n’ roll to their talks are hard to come by. No matter what the research interests of the audience, these speakers hypnotize the audience with their funny analogies and the confidence in their data. Leaving the audience inspired to run back to the[…]
