Meet the Early Stage Researchers

STARSTEM is a vibrant project with collaborators who are at different stages of their research careers – from PhD students to senior professors. Some of our early stage researchers have set up social media accounts to share their personal story. They share their day to day experiences of life as a scientist and researcher.

Very excited to be presenting my work at the uk and German Extracellular Vesicle  symposium on the 3rd of September. Tune in to hear about the comparison between stem cell  vesicles derived from different species @ukevsoc #stemcells #ev #extracellularvesicles #exosomes #virtualconference

While we can't meet our usual 6 month plenary meeting face to face we are still pushing forward online!

Day 1 is going well! Sharing all of work together and coming together with solutions for problems 
Shout-out to Snorlax mug full of coffee the real MVP!

Unfortunately, our country is experiencing an unprecedented health emergency.  This requires us to slow down our work and safeguard our health.  So today a lot of primary cells have been frozen.
It means that I will spend my time to analyze all the data stuck on my PC 😁

Day 2 of Photonics West lots of really interesting talks on the use of Adaptive optics in medical imaging and OCT uses in dentistry demonstrating how truly multidisciplinary the technique is!
