Science is full of jargon and wonderful multi-syllabic words that roll off the tongue. One of my favorite biology phrases from junior high school days is “endoplasmic reticulum”. With this blog, we’ll be going “endoplasmic” or “inside the cell” to find out more about the latest biotech-related research and global challenges. Our Designated Emphasis in Biotechnology PhD student bloggers will be writing for a general audience, aiming to educate and myth-bust about popular science topics, as well as highlighting campus research projects. Bloggers will also be sharing their experiences of graduate school, biotech-related internships and professional development advice for a wide range of professional career paths. DEB students are drawn from 29 STEM disciplines across the life sciences and engineering, so this blog will be a smorgasbord of biotech fun. Enjoy!
