New Intern on the Node

Posted by , on 18 September 2017

Hello readers of the Node! My name is Sarah and I’m delighted to meet the Node readership as the new intern on the Node, hopefully I will be communicating and interacting with many of you over the next three months.

Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about myself. I am currently undertaking a BBSRC PhD in Dr Thomas Pratt’s research lab at the University of Edinburgh. A component of this programme is a three-month internship to allow us to experience careers outside the traditional academic job trajectory and I am fortunate enough to undertake my internship with the Node. My background is developmental neurobiology, with my PhD focusing on understanding the concert of genes that act to control human foetal cerebral cortex development and how disruptions to this can contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders.

For years now I have been fascinated by the incredible complexity of all aspects of development and how the multitude of processes acts flawlessly in concert to generate the complete organism. The Node is a place that encompasses the vast spectrum of development; from the computational modelling, single cell studies, to complete organisms into one space for biologists to learn, explore new avenues of research and simply enjoy the wonder of it all. I am so excited to be a part of this online community for all researchers and I hope I can contribute to making it a more enjoyable resource for you all.

  1. Hello,

    We wish to advertise for the conference “the Origins of Metazoans” that will take place in Paris on the 7 and 8 of November 2017, under the hospice of The French Multi-organization thematic Institute “Cell biology, development and evolution” (ITMO BCDE). Please let us know how to insert the announce. We have a dedicated website for information and registration:

    Many thanks in advance for your attention
    Christine Lemaitre

    1. Hi Christine,
      We have just authorised you to post on the Node, you should now be able to advertise your conference. You can do this in 2 ways:
      1) add it to our events calender
      2) write a post advertising it and providing more details.
      Please let me know if you need any more help.
      Thank you,
