Today I'll be sharing my story and discussing the importance of women in STEM at the QEH School Trailblazers Conference. I'll be speaking alongside some incredible women and most importantly I'll meet the next generation of STEM ambassadors 💪🙌🌠

Yesterday these pins arrived. They have been commissioned by the Women In Physics at Imperial College London. They have set themselves a challenge of raising enough money to get the @angeladsaini INFERIOR book into every public school in NYC 🗽 they have already succeeded in getting the book into schools in the UK. The book is called 'How Science Got Women Wrong - And The New Research That's Rewriting The Story.' so you can see it is an important message about changing the damaging stereotypes within science in industry and schools to achieve equal opportunities for all. .https://www.gofundme.com/challenge-bias-in-nyc-schools

Happy weekend everyone!!! We made it, even if I did have to call upon a little ice-cream this afternoon,
to get us there quicker 🤷🏻‍♀️
Tomorrow we are off to London to get our geek on. The @newscientistlive show has come to London and I can’t tell you how excited I am. I’ve been a bit of a science geek for as long as I can remember and it’s been my dream since I was a little girl to travel into space.
So, I’ve spent the last couple of hours studying the #NSLive website to make sure I don’t miss out on anything.
We are talking Hydrogen Fuelled Cars 🚙, Robotics, Space Exploration, Planetariums, Fire Science, Microscopy, Science Experiments, the lot!! 🚀🛰🔋🔍🔥🌎🦗🧠☄️
So, come on, what gets your geek on?

Here’s our founder and Head of Explosions @reneewatson77 on the opening day of @newscientistlive

"First day of New Scientist Live with @thecuriositybox_ and I have just about burst a gasket with excitement! Come see us and play with our putty!”⠀

We’re at the show every day so swing by stand 1405, say hi and join in the seriously sciency fun! 😁⠀

Get hands on and play with putty, explode marshmallows with our pressure experiments, post your questions on our WHY? wall and check out our science kit including seriously cool smartphone microscopes 🔬⠀

#Celltember 21

A few days ago, I talked about HeLa cells and their enormous contribution in basic sciences as well as in biomedical research. Their development also allowed to better understand the essential requirements for the development of new cell lines and models. This has save time, resources and increase the reproducibility of the assays. However, the new knowledge of cell biology has also shown how important is the micro environment for cell development. Organs and tissues are not typically composed of a homogeneous cell population, but rather are complex structures with intricate relations between vessels, nerves, extracellular matrix, etc. To better understand these complex interactions, a two-dimensional model (cell monolayer) is not always the best option. And it is precisely here, where the "three-dimensional cell cultures" or "spheroids" can be very useful. This 3D arrangement allows cells to interact with each other and with the extracellular matrix in a more natural way, providing a better representation of reality. Under these conditions, cells are also subject to the restrictions and mechanical effects of the environment, factors that are key for cancer research and the development of stem cells, to name a few.
Thanks to new technologies, researchers have been able to study entire spheroids, as well as subpopulations and even individual cells within a colony. In particular, the ability of spheroids to mimic a true tumor has been an important contribution in the discovery and development of more effective drugs.
So spheroids, together with other techniques, have helped us to go one step further in the titanic task of understanding complex systems.

A B C of Neuroscience!
Hand-made notes!!!
Lets get started♥️
I have decided to start with a description of a brain region which is evolutionarily conserved and we use it a lot during fearful situations in our lives :) A for Amygdala ♥️ There is a brief description on amygdala, its location and function in our brains!

At the end, here is an interesting case study of a female patient called SM who suffered from a rare genetic disorder called Urbach- Wiethe Disease. She had bilateral amygdala destruction and due to which she couldn't experience fear.

Media called her: " woman with no fear" or "fearless woman"

AWKWARDNESS OVERLOAD - A sneak peek of a [casual] video series I’m making for students (ages 11-15) that are in computer programming courses. The schools that will have these specific courses are largely made up of underrepresented minorities.
This is clip of a longer video that explains some of the fears I had as a minority, low-income student who dreamed of having a career in STEM. I’m passionate about promoting STEM education and have been directly working with organizations that are striving to make quality education accessible to each and every student. This is just the beginning! ✊🏽📚
*I can count the number of videos I’ve created and edited on one hand so I’m well aware of how cheesy this is and that I need to improve 😅 I also realized how insanely awkward it can be to talk to a camera by yourself and how I prefer speaking in person to an audience! #educationforall #STEMgirls

What was it like 50 years ago to be a woman in a male dominated field? What is it like today? And what does the research have to say about it? Check out an analysis of this growing trend on the blog! Written by yours truly, editor Mary :)
