Hello everyone! The time has come to present my .

I am a cell and developmental biologist working on cell division and using the Caenorhabditis elegans worm as a model.

I am a specialist in in vivo confocal microscopy, image analysis and quantification. I model the germline in 4D using various computer tools to better understand how stem cells divide.

Another introduction. Hi all! I am a masters candidate in Palaeontology investigating inner ear anatomy and locomotor/positional behavior in primates (including humans). I have wide interests in everything from politics to neuroscience.

I'm looking for conference posters that are NOT in English or other Latin texts for my poster blog.

Anyone know an conference with poster sessions where the primary language is not English and similar?

I am also passionate about and , and nature conservation

I love long multi-day ultralight hikes.

I'm of course vegan, antifa, anti-pseudoscience and stuff

Every far right wacko group is a cult, led by the most absurd twit, for a reason. That's how you select for the most fervent followers.

alien 1: in summary, the humans have nearly rendered the blue planet uninhabitable. The only plan they appear to have is to migrate to the red planet.

alien 2: can they breathe the atmosphere of the red planet?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: is there material there they can eat?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: can the plants and animals of their planet live there?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: is there liquid water there?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: lol wtf?

alien 1: lol idk

Hello, scholar social! Here's my

I'm here from the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology dept at the University of Toronto and the Palaeobiology dept at the Royal Ontario Museum.

I'm a PhD Candidate studying growth and life history in extant and extinct cats, using both observational data (collected by others) and data from the growth record preserved in bone (collected by me)! See below for what a fossil Smilodon bone looks like under the microscope 👀

abortion, reproductive rights 

And yet when it comes to abortion, increasing obstacles are put in front of women to exercise this basic human right. The terrible and terrifying reality is that no law will stop women from accessing abortion - it will just make it dangerous, expensive, exploitative, and potentially life threatening. And the danger is never equally distributed, but always intersectional. Safe abortions will be a choice only for those who can afford it. 2/

abortion, reproductive rights 

What a dark day for reproductive rights in the US, I fear for other countries that have already been following the same far-right and populist wave as the US in the last couple of decades.

Part of my work has been on how organisations providing fertility treatment in the UK understand the female body that is not reproducing - & it's not pretty. We are still seen as passive vessels for potential future life, which takes precedence over our own body autonomy. 1/
