The Node new community manager!

Cat The Node photoHi! My name is Cat and I am the new Community Manager here at The Node. I am originally from Portugal, but moved to the UK to study a long time ago (almost a decade!). Until very recently I was a PhD student at Jordan Raff’s lab in Oxford, using fruit flies to study how centrosomes are formed- so I like to think of myself as a cell biologist with a developmental twist! Although I had a great time in the lab, I eventually realized that I enjoyed much more interacting with scientists and hearing about their science than doing my own…

This is why I am so excited about my new position as The Node Community Manager- in its essence, The Node is a place to bring scientists (you!) together, to share ideas and opinions and the latest research. I want to play my part in facilitating that! Eva did an excellent job in setting up and developing The Node in the last three years, and that is a hard act to follow. Going forwards, I will do my best to continue making The Node the vibrant and dynamic community website that it is, and you’ll be hearing a lot more from me in the coming months. Meanwhile, please continue to contribute content and comments to The Node, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any suggestions, questions or comments. You can drop me an email at thenode [at] (or by clicking here) and please do say hello if you see me at a conference. I look forward to meeting you!
