Because of those men and women... we have the freedom to explore and the freedom to live out our dreams. We have the freedom to make an impact not only on our country, but on the entire world with our research, our field explorations, our lab tests, our legislative meetings, our science outreach. ItFEEDING TIME IN THE LAB πŸ”¬
.
Let me introduce to you the divas of the cell world - embryonic stem cells.
Why? Because they need feeding every single day - that means weekends AND bank holidays like today!
.
Here are three plates of my embryonic stem cells today growing in their culture plates with their medium which contains all the nutrients they will need to grow! But you have probably noticed the striking difference in colour of the media right? Perhaps youre wondering why? Well let me tell you....
.
As more cells grow in my dishes, the nutrients in the media get used up quicker. The cells then metabolise these nutrients, or break the nutrients up into useable compounds. But converting the nutrients into something they can use means there is probably some waste and the cells release that waste back into the media! And it is this release of byproducts that is causing the colour change you see.
.
The media we use to feed our cells has an indicator in it called phenol red and gives the media its red colour. This indicator tells us the pH of the media, or how acidic it is. When the pH is higher than neutral (pH 7), it means the media is more alkali and more red in colour. When the pH is lower than neutral, the media is more acidic and it turns orange and eventually yellow. So when my cells are releasing these waste products, they are making the media more acidic.
.
This is the quick indicator scientists use to quickly tell how hungry their cells are. The more yellow the media, the hungrier my cells are as they have used up all the nutrients in the media.
.
So, much like a baby cries to tell you its hungry, my embryonic stem cells turn the media a different colour to tell me theyre hungry! insta topsy.oneYIn the June issue of Chemistry in Australia, Tom Spurling and David Solomon reflect on the security of banknote technology, beginning with a bold decision in 1968 by the Governor of the Reserve Bank at the time to put his faith in polymer science. The piece is a first hand account of the rise of polymer bank notes in Australia, as David Solomon -- driving force behind the project -- introduced the concept of a polymer substrate to the Reserve Bank, and Tom Spurling was a member of the project team.

Caught this one resting, not too far away from the nest. One of the parents came over and gave it a meal before it took a couple of short flights into another tree on the edge of the woods. While these robins were lucky, as only 40% of nests successfully produce young, these fledglings have a long road to make it back here next spring. Theywww.chercheursdumonde.com

Neurons that are grown with proteins from astrocytes (first image) grow better than neurons that are grown in just a minimal media! (second image) Ben Barres first noticed this back in 1997 and the importance of astrocytes in supporting normal neuronal growth and development is the main focus of my lab today. .
