The coffee machine is essential, because it brings people from neighbouring labs together. And sometimes, a chat at the coffee machine saves you a half a year of work, because a colleague has the important information to jump-start and go ahead. So what we focus on is doing experiments which have not been done before,
(music playing) Dr. Larry Romsted: I’m interested in Chemistry because I was always interested in Chemistry. I was one of those guys when Sputnik went up, and there was a call in the country to have people do science, I responded to that. In graduate school, I ended up working with a guy named Cortis,
Hi guys! Today I’m going to flipping through my biology notes from the past school year. If you’re wondering why I still sound kind of weird, I’m still sick unfortunately. So I store all of my old notes in this 2 inch binder which was featured in one of my stationery hauls a while back.
>>Up next from the University of Toronto is Jasdeep Saggar. She’s doing a PhD in Medical Biophysics supervised by Professor Ian Tannock. Her presentation title is, “Hypoxia-activated pro-drugs: A novel approach for breast cancer treatment.” [ Applause ]>>Jasdeep Saggar: So, very good afternoon to you all. My name is Jas and the focus of my
My research is about the production of biodiesel from algae in supercritical ethanol, so basically I put an alcohol high-pressure and high-temperature to convert the biomass and biofuels. The University of Birmingham is one of the best universities in the UK, especially in my field of chemical engineering, and the city’s really good, so it’s
One of the reasons we started this project is that reaction engineering, the course which we’re using it in, is really difficult to build a laboratory around, because this involves like gigantic reactor vessels and, you know, arranging configurations of reactors on an industrial scale, like piping and heating and cooling. And so by putting
Well David Attenborough was a classic. It’s a cliche. I don’t even know what that is. It’s a Killer Whale mate, come on. Oh. Thank you. I always feel like it was always going to end up being biology. The question is what would draw me to another subject over biology. If you want one
