Fly on the wall
If you’re wondering how fruit fly research could be useful for humans, you are not alone. I started this blog to introduce fly science to a broader audience. I hope to make current research in flies more approachable to non-fly-scientists, as well as demonstrate how basic research in this animal model is translatable to higher organisms, including humans. I will also write about my experiences working in a fly lab so you can get an idea of a ‘day in the life’ of a researcher and her flies. This blog contains three types of posts: Fly Life: What’s it like to work with flies? I’ll go into detail about the flies themselves, how researchers perform different types of experiments, and how various genetic tools work. Breaking research: I’ll summarize recently published original research articles that are advancing our basic scientific understanding. Translational findings: I’ll provide examples of how research in fruit flies has translated to mammalian systems, including those of humans.

Traveling Neuroscientist
It’s a Travel/Academic Lifestyle/ Neuroscience blog: I started this blog to keep in touch with family and friends. My mother is an english teacher and my first love (before I discovered neuroscience) was writing and storytelling. Here you will find personal stories, with feminist undertones, science, history, and an occasional living abroad tip, academic or science career resource, or even a recipe. Because I am a neuroscientist, I talk about almost everything, from that perspective. Subscribe to this blog if you are interested in learning about neuroscience topics, in the context of the daily life of an international science student.

Whitman Was Not a Neuroscientist
Do I contradict myself?Very well then I contradict myself,(I am large, I contain multitudes.)-Walt Whitman, "Song of Myself" (from Leaves of Grass)Science is the search for objective truth based on physical laws of the universe. Scientific theories try to explain the consistent and predictable behavior of natural systems. They are generally reductionist, meaning that complex systems are reduced to simpler and more fundamental elements. The principles of physics, for instance, are expressed in […]
