Hello all! I am a 2nd-year PhD candidate from the Queensland University of Technology based at the Translational Research Institute in Brisbane, Australia. I have a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BBiomSci) and an Honours in Biomedical Sciences (BBiomSci Hons). My research focuses on finding ways to prevent or delay disease relapse in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have been […]
Hey there! My name is Breann and I’m a 5th year PhD candidate in Nutritional Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (minor). This semester, I’m both working on my research and teaching a food science course as a first-time instructor! This means that my days are all over the map – a combination of wet lab work and bioinformatics alongside teaching labs, […]
I’m a second year Biochemistry PhD student. I’m 24 years old and I’m originally from Belarus but have been living in Miami for the past 13 years. In my PhD, I’m studying various outer membrane protein found on mitochondria. I fell in love with science in high school when I took AP Biology and did my undergrad in Biology as […]
I’m Ellie Hurer and I am a structural biology PhD student at the University of Hertfordshire. I am researching a protein called S100P, that is implicated in Pancreatic cancer. I started my PhD straight from my undergraduate in Biochemistry, which I found to be a massive jump! I really enjoy my research but I also love my outside life. I […]
Featured ‘Day in the life of’ : Lily, PhD student studying the role of oxidative stress in the brain.
I’m Lily, a second year PhD student at Curtin University and the Perron Institute here in Perth, Australia. I study the role of oxidative stress in the brain in Multiple Sclerosis and neurotrauma. Most days, you’ll either find me in the lab or doing desk work, so I’ve tried to highlight a day where I got to do both! I’m […]
Hello! My name is Tori and welcome to The Day in the Life of a Tiny but Mighty Scientist! I am a recent graduate of Fort Lewis College with a Bachelors of Science in Cellular and Molecule Biology. Now, I’m currently a PhD student at the University of Arizona and will start my program this coming August. My most recent […]
I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Georgia studying genetics and developmental biology. I specifically study how the parathyroid (what controls how much calcium is in your blood versus your bones) and thymus (creates your T cells, an important part of your immune system) come from the *exact* same tissue. I do this by trying to find out what […]
Hello everyone! My name is Emily Richardson (click here for Instagram) and I am a PhD student at the University of Leicester, UK. My work centres around a specific type of lung cancer – Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer – caused by an EML4-ALK fusion protein. I’m looking at the mechanisms which cause its increased migration and invasion, which leads to […]
Featured ‘Day in the life of’: Daniella, Conservation biologist PhD student researching black-cockatoos.
Hi, I’m Daniella. I’m a conservation biologist and all-round nature fanatic, currently doing a PhD on endangered black-cockatoos in south-eastern Australia. My project is in the field of bioacoustics, which is just a fancy term for the study of animal sounds. I research the vocal behaviour of black-cockatoos, and from this am developing new ways to monitor populations with sound […]
Hi everyone! My name is Hannah and I work in the US state park system as a field biologist studying golden-winged warblers (GWWAs), which are one of the fastest-declining songbird species in the Americas. GWWAs easily hybridize with a sister species, which is thought to be contributing to their decline. The region I work in is very unique because the […]
