Close-up of slime making. πŸ”ŠSound on!!! πŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰
This Fluorescent slime is produced by crosslinking chains of polyvinylalcohol using a borax solution. I absolutely love the sound produced by playing with the finished slime! πŸ˜‚

Yesterday, I defended my doctoral dissertation research and I can proudly say that I am officially Dr. Stephanie Buttermore πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“A HUGE thank you to everyone who came or tuned in to the live stream, I'm more grateful than you can possibly imagine πŸ™πŸ™
It was one of the most intense yet amazing days of my life πŸ™Œ After an hour long seminar sharing my findings and then 2 hours of a private oral examination with my committee, I came out of the room feeling, albeit pretty darn smart, as if I was hit by a train πŸš‚πŸ€•πŸ˜“
Today, I shall rest and relax with @jeffnippard and do whatever I want 🀀 yessssssssss 😌

Happy Monday! Here's a pic from the chalkboard talk I was talking about up in my story ↖️Pic thanks to @almeidasylvs! πŸ™
Our lab starts off each week with one student giving this type of talk for an hour, and today was mine! Because our lab is so big, I only get to do this about once a year, and it's reeally fun because it's a full hour to talk about whatever exciting new idea or data we want.
The unspoken rule of these meetings is to nitpick and overcritique each other, which on the surface might seem totally brutal and nerve-racking haha. But this kind of critical interrogation has become my favourite part of a scientific mindset both in and out of the lab and now I approach this kinda thing with excitement about the inevitable debate! For example, today I got interrupted ~ every 2 minutes for a question or critique, which I honestly loved ... all the comments from my clever labmates ensures my logic and experimental design are optimally set up for finding new exciting truths.
Today I decided to give a more abstract talk about a new idea for an experiment I'll be starting soon. This experiment is trying to resolve the stem cells and their daughter cells I study at single cell resolution! This is in line with the single cell/high res trend I discussed a few posts ago as being the hottest new thing at the conference I was a few weeks ago. πŸ™†
The scribbles you see on the board were things I drew as I spoke about what I predict to get out of this experiment, but also some of the advantages and disadvantages of the technique. These include lots of technical 'noise' and high cost for resolving that noise. As I mentioned in that other post, this is just like a photograph - the more you zoom, the more pixelated and blurry a picture gets. With more expensive equipment you can take higher res photos, though it's harder to process those more detailed photos and isn't always worth the cost, depending what the photo is for. Same thing with these experiments: there's a trade off between cost vs. better resolution & more data for each cell.
Feeling lots of #mondaymotivation from the good ideas my labmate gave me and hoping it diffuses to all of you as well ❀️

There have been many recent conversations between physicians about the amount of administrative work we need to do in addition to our clinical work. Often it's done over lunch so we get home at a better time.
Many doctors skip lunch. That makes me HANGRY which is not pretty. But I also cannot eat a big meal and no time to make lunches in the morning.
So I have thrown it back to the time I bought these for my young girls. I buy three boxes because... choices! Sometimes eating like a toddler is a win!

In 1919, two women sent letters to U.S. colleges, asking if any female engineering students had ever been enrolled. The answers they received, published by @sweralk, are as egregious as they are telling. Today, only 13% of engineers in the U.S. are women. That's why Boeing is dedicated to increasing the number of women in STEM careers worldwide. This International Women in Engineering Day, let's change that. #WomenMakeUsBetter #WomenInSTEM #SWE #INWED17

Sophie Youngman (1849-1911) was the first Headmistress of Ipswich High School for Girls when it opened in 1878. The Girls’ Public Day School Company was set up in 1870 with the aim of providing good and affordable education, a wide curriculum and for the first time, to educate girls to examination standards.

Within a few years, girls from the Ipswich High School were taking Cambridge exams and proceeding to Higher Education. One pupil was Kathleen Nibloe, the daughter of Ipswich Railway Stationmaster, who started at the school on the day of its opening. She received a scholarship to Newnham College, Cambridge of Β£15 and having passed the Classical Tripos Examination went on to teach Latin and Greek. Other examples were 4 pupils, who in 1893 went on to study medicine at London School of Medicine. Mildred Sims, Ipswich’s first woman doctor, was an early student. In 1907 the school moved to new premises in Westerfield Road, Ipswich.

Miss Youngman’s home during her years as Headmistress was in 68, Christchurch Street and where according to the 1881 census she was the Head of Household. For 21 years Miss Youngman led and developed the school, changing local prejudice and public opinion about schooling for girls. The school still awards a prize in her name.
@ipswichhighschool what is the prize awarded for these days?

Hold the experiments - lipstick check πŸ’„ βœ… I've been raving about this shade for the last two weeks from @colourpopcosmetics and no it's not sponsored. It's a satin lipstick but it's not too drying like the other mattes. I bought it in a three pack of lipsticks and it's my favorite shade - baracuda ❀️ deep red and it's rather flattering on my skin tone! I mostly wear lipsticks and glosses to lab because most of the time I can't find my chap stick πŸ˜‚ I hate when my lips are dry, so the fashionable solution is a nice lipstick. Do you have a favorite lipstick for work? What kind of shade? Do you think it's appropriate for a dark bold shade for lab? Let me know in the comments. #labcoatfashion #darklip

"Being a scientist and a feminist is a win-win situation. Science gives you the weapons to do battle in feminist causes, while feminism gives you the awareness to spot the potential for misuse of these very weapons."
"Feminism will give you the awareness that research can be biased (consciously or unconsciously) or based on existing orthodoxies that are themselves founded on unchallenged negative stereotypes. Research into the links between hormones and behavior in women employs scales such as the Menstrual Distress Questionnaire. Has anyone come across an Ovulation Euphoria Questionnaire? Science does not always occur in a political vacuum; scientists should be sensitive to this and be aware of the "persistent low drum beat" of the biology-is-destiny movement."
"Feminism can transform methodologies, challenge the lack of objectivity and improve scientific practice in the biological and life sciences, as well as the social and human sciences. Working together, science and feminism can help to plug the leaky pipeline in science; to address gender issues of representation and practice; to support initiatives such as WISE, Skirting Science, ScienceGrrl. Science can be good for feminism and feminism can be good for science." @guardian

Man, I'm exhausted. Moving is horrible and stressing out about selling furniture is the worst. I'm finally taking a short break to have dinner and I didn't eat the greatest today but I'm ending today with a yummy salad, and I prepped some ground turkey, veggies and sweet potato to have for lunch for the next few days. I still have to tackle my kitchen, and that will take the most effort since I have a lot of kitchen stuff... but I think that will be tomorrow's project after work... oh and I'm trying a new experiment protocol tomorrow - Wednesday - Thursday...: sooooo add that to my stress! I really want to get a workout in but I think all the walking, running around and lifting heavy boxes, couches etc counts right?! πŸ˜³πŸ˜’πŸ˜ͺ

Today I probably doubled my tweets with the #HarryPotterPhD hashtag. I think I'm funny as fuck, so if you need a laugh (more likely a light chuckle or slight smile bc let's be real, I'm a scientist aka not THAT funny) or just love Harry Potter, check it out!
