Idea Lab (aka Journal Club)

  • February 19 · 5:30 PM

Facilitated by: Nina DiPrimio

This course/discussion club is geared towards all levels of scientific background. The purpose of this meeting is to help people learn, facilitate collaboration and spark project ideas that can be implemented at BioCurious.

The first part of the meeting will focus on the discussion of one current topic in science, including important background information, related research studies and potential future applications.

During the second part of the meeting, participants are encouraged to discuss their current and potential future projects to get feedback from others in the citizen science community.

Topics for each instance of the Idea Lab will be announced closer to each meeting. If you have an idea for a topic/paper you'd like to review, let us know!!!

Join [masked] for information on topics. 

About Nina:

Nina DiPrimio earned her PhD in Pharmacology from UNC -Chapel Hill, performing gene therapy research. Specifically, she characterized the adeno-associated virus capsid to develop enhanced viral vectors for therapeutic gene delivery. After graduate school, she moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to instruct molecular biology and cell and developmental biology laboratory courses at Carnegie Mellon University. However,research came calling her name again, and Nina relocated to Berkeley to start a synthetic biology postdoc in the laboratory of J. Christopher Anderson. Currently, she is working with a team to develop biosensors for natural and unnatural ligands.

Her enthusiasm for teaching remains, and she is inspired by the citizen science movement and enhancing scientific communication and collaboration in the community. When not holding a pipette,Nina enjoys cooking and messing around on the guitar, as well as playing tennis and fantasizing about opening a winery.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
