Isabella Asselstine (Biology) – What we can learn about sleep disorders from worms!

Isabella’s research stems from a desire to learn more about the biological basis of narcolepsy, a sleep disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and “sleep attacks”. The cause of narcolepsy has previously been linked to a neuropeptide called orexin that is involved in keeping us awake. When orexin signalling is disrupted, either by altering orexin […]

Dan Reddy, Chemistry – Preparation and Testing of a Volumetrically-Accurate Open Surface Energy Trap (oSET) Wand for Liquid Transfer applications

OR in other words – Precisely and Reliably Capturing Tiny Liquid Volumes The challenge of pipetting small volumes, i.e., sub-microliter amounts, is ubiquitous among the fields of biology, chemistry, and engineering. While accurately and precisely pipetting at the sub-microliter level is indeed a dilemma, the issue is further compounded when dealing with non-aqueous solutions, e.g., biofluids, […]
