SciArt Profiles: Sofia Araújo

Posted by on February 19th, 2021

In our fifth SciArt Profile we meet Sofia Araújo, a Professor in the University of Barcelona.   Where are you originally from, where do you work now, and what do you work on now? I am originally from Portugal. I took my Ph.D. in the UK and now, after a postdoc and a career development[…]

SciArt Profiles: Priyanka Oberoi

Posted by on February 12th, 2021

In our fourth SciArt Profile we meet Priyanka Oberoi, an illustrator, artist and photographer whose work often features scientific themes.   Where are you originally from and what do you work on now? Originally I am from India, and am an illustrator and photographer by profession. After spending five years studying art in the College[…]

SciArt Profiles: Sydney Wyatt

Posted by on February 4th, 2021

In our third SciArt Profile we meet Sydney Wyatt, a PhD student based at the University of California, Davis.   Where are you originally from, where do you work now, and what do you work on? I am originally from a small Northern California town, Paradise. I went out of state to get my BS[…]

SciArt Profiles: Justine Renno

Posted by on January 22nd, 2021

The second in our new series of SciArt profiles features Justine Renno, a Master’s student in Bordeaux.   Where are you originally from, where do you work now, and what do you work on? I am originally from Alsace in France. I got a Master’s in developmental biology which I ended with a 6 months[…]

SciArt Profiles: Suyash Naik

Posted by on January 13th, 2021

This is the first in a new series on the Node profiling scientists who do art (or artists who do science). We’ll learn about why they do it, their artistic influences, their techniques and tips. We’ll be looking for new people to feature in this series throughout the year – whatever kind of art you[…]

The people behind the papers – Xin Zhu, Yiquan Wang and Guang Li

Posted by on August 26th, 2020

This interview, the 77th in our series, was published in Development earlier this year.  During development, the establishment of directional left-right (L-R) asymmetry is crucial for the correct positioning of organs within the body. How symmetry is broken in the embryo is still incompletely understood at the molecular level, as is its evolutionary history. A new[…]

Salah Elias introduces a new virtual forum for early PIs in cell and developmental biology

Posted by on June 29th, 2020

Of the many virtual seminar series that have sprung up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, one in particular caught our eye – the New PIs in Cell and Developmental Biology Forum (you can follow updates and find information by following #NewPICellDev on Twitter). To find out more about the series we met Salah Elias,[…]

The people behind the papers – Charles Sheehan, John McMahon and Debby Silver

Posted by on May 27th, 2020

This interview, the 76th in our series, was published in Development earlier this year.  Interneurons are crucial to cortical function and their dysregulation has been implicated in various neurological pathologies, yet how they are generated during development is still poorly understood. A new paper in Development investigates interneuron neurogenesis in the mouse embryo and its[…]

The people behind the papers – Madeleine Linneberg-Agerholm, Yan Fung Wong and Josh Brickman

Posted by on February 20th, 2020

This interview, the 75th in our series, was recently published in Development.  Our understanding of lineage decisions in early human development has been greatly aided by embryonic stem cell lines, which avoid many of the practical and ethical difficulties of in vivo material. A new paper in Development exploits naïve human embryonic stem cells to generate in vitro models for the extra-embryonic[…]

The people behind the papers – Roman Szabo and Thomas Bugge

Posted by on January 29th, 2020

This interview, the 74th in our series, was recently published in Development.  Dysregulated activity of cell surface proteolytic enzymes has a wide range of developmental and pathological consequences, but the underlying mechanisms are often poorly understood. A new Development paper uses mice to model a severe inherited form of enteropathy and the role of the serine protease matriptase[…]
