Research this month has been somewhat disrupted by our lab refurbishment. We’ve had to move everything into the university’s teaching lab for the work to be carried out and then all back in to our lab again afterwards! The lab looks great and we’ve got heaps more storage space but there’s no way I’m reaching the top shelves without a step ladder! I’ve christened the lab by doing tons of qPCR!
The lab disruption was briefly forgotten when I visited Fisher’s Science World at Wembley Stadium. It was great to talk to some scientists and get some fantastic freebies but the highlight of the day was definitely a talk by Professor Brian Cox. My understanding of the Higgs boson progressed from extremely vague to moderately vague!
I love to connect with other scientists on twitter! Follow me @KarlyBroadway.
Karly first joined BJS Biotechnologies as an undergraduate placement student in 2007. A bachelor’s and master’s degree later and Karly is back working with BJS but this time as a PhD student in conjunction with her alma mater, Brunel University. Her research looks at the mTOR signalling pathway in endometriosis and ovarian cancer.
In her spare time, Karly is learning to play the guitar and drinks a lot of tea.
