Idea Lab (aka Journal Club)

5 - 6:30 pm

Idea Lab (aka Journal Club)

Facilitated by: Nina DiPrimio

About the Meetup:

This course/discussion club is free for members and $5 for nonmembers, and 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!!!

About Nina:

ANina DiPrimio earned her PhD in Pharmacology from UNC -Chapel Hill, performing gene therapy research. Specifically, she characterized the adeno-associated virus capsid to developenhanced viral vectors for therapeutic gene delivery. After graduate school, she moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to instruct molecular biology and cell and developmental biologylaboratory 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.

    Presentation by Skype seemed to work well after some initial audio problems. I think an agenda might help improve the meetings and use of time. Ended up covering only one topic and ran out of time. It was a lot to cover, so I understand but a small amount of planning such as an agenda with times for each topic and sub-topic would probably help with meeting flow.

    Since different people come and go, it might help to have each attendee introduce themselves and their interests/what they are trying to get out of the meeting at the start.

    I've prepared a simple document with some photos and information about GFP. Here's a link to it on the wiki.

    Here is a link to a chapter I found on GFP gen fusions used as reporter genes.
