I am a 2nd year PhD student. My research focuses on blood vessel development (combining blood vessels AND embryos, two of my favourite things), but I love all science! I wish people talked about it more and in better ways (for example, over beer).

I am a first year PhD student in Cardiovascular Medicine. In science, we seem to use a lot of jargon. I think it’d be awesome to break down that barrier and show everyone the inspiring work that’s going on.
