Épisode #2 - Aurore - Paléontologue (Enregistré en mars 2018)
Aurore est paléontologue. Oui oui, pour de vrai! Les dinosaures, c’est sa passion depuis toute petite et ça s’entend! Alors comment faire face aux conseillers d’orientation qui se demandent si c’est un vrai métier, comment poursuivre ses envies alors qu’on essaie de te décourager et comment Jurassic Park a influencé toute une génération. On parle de toute ça avec elle.
Encore merci à Aurore pour sa confiance!

The orange here is likely an aplidium sp. tunicate! Tunicates are the bridge between invertebrates and vertebrates, as adults they have no vertebrate characteristics so they fall into my jurisdiction, but as babies they have a centralized nervous system and a nerve cord! Tunicates can be solitary and more upright, or colonies and form gooey masses like this one. •
There are also snails and red bryozoans in this picture. Anything else I’m missing?

Presenting to this group on 'Leading A Healthy Lifestyle'
It's a lifestyle of:
- taking care of your microbiome feeding it well
- some exercise
- taking time out for you
It's what you consume and your environment that impacts your health and wellbeing.
Last week I had a practical where my composite fell out with 20 min left to spare. 😅 And THEN my enamel hatchet took a lovely chunk off my prep.
Got a bunch of free goodies at the vendor fair (yay for more clutter and things to hoard)! Can’t say no to free toothbrushes. I also got a pizza cutter at the last fair I was at, and this time I got a bottle opener fidget spinner.
Next week we start 2 new classes, have our craniofacial exam and cadaver practical, and then a neuro exam worth 1/3rd of our entire grade.
BUT on the bright side, I had some delicious chicken tikka masala today and took a 🔥 nap, so I’m feeling #blessed because food and naps are always the move😋 💤

Dado que la semana pasads conmemoramos el Día Internacional de la Mujer y la Niña en la Ciencia, quiero recomendar este libro: Mujeres de Ciencia - 50 intrépidas pioneras que cambiaron el mundo. Escrito e ilustrado por Rachel Ignotofsky.
Este es un recorrido muy significativo por la historia de cincuenta mujeres y sus aportes fundamentales a la ciencia (en su mayoría desde posiciones invisibilidadas). Encontramos perfiles tan interesantes como los de María Sibylla Merian, ilustradora científica y entomóloga, que fue de gran ayuda para que futuros científicos pudieran clasificar y comprender lo insectos. Nettie Stevens, genetista, que con su investigación permitió comprender de mejor manera la determinación del sexo del ser humano y la genética. María Goeppert-Mayer, física teoría, ganadora del Premio Nobel de Física, que demostró el modelo nuclear de capas para los átomos. Vera Rubin, astrónoma que descubrió pruebas reales de la existencia de la materia oscura, así como realizó observaciones novedosas sobre cómo rotan las galaxias. Entre muchas otras, que históricamente han luchado contra la discriminación y el techo de cristal, pero que sus aportes han sido fundamentales para los diversos campos de la ciencia.
During busy and stressful times, have you ever thought “I don’t have a life?”.
For me, “work life balance” means going to the gym after work only when I feel like it, taking a sick day for mental health reasons, ordering uber eats because I have a long day of work ahead, staying up late with friends I haven’t seen in a while or spending extra time with a patient because I feel that they need it.
It means having my lunch outside, when the weather is good, even though I then have to stay late to finish my notes at the end of the day.
It means sometimes not doing my laundry for 3 weeks, because I just can’t face it or day dreaming about being a house wife or having a “boring desk job”.
It also means feeling grateful for this incredible vocation I have in which I get to connect with people and share some of their most vulnerable experiences.
What has helped me the most is to stay connected to myself and the people I love. I work hard but I take breaks and I recognize my limits. I share my excitement, my fears and dreams with others.
I try to exercise, sleep and eat well, but I don’t beat myself up over it.
What does “work life balance” meant to you and what has helped you?
Notebooks are the most pure and beautiful form of the work researchers do every day.
Researchers take so much pride in publications, posters, and presentations. They have “pretty pictures“ and are (relatively) easy to understand. But if you want to know what research is really like, take a look at someone’s notebook. It’s messy, half-scribbles of findings after sitting in a lab all day. It’s writing down specific values of every test so that no one can say your data is made up. It’s trying to explain a 12 hour protocol on paper so whoever works after you can have a guide to your work. It’s another monotonous task in an already difficult day, but it also is something to be appreciated.
O Brasil tem ao menos 77,8 mil pesquisadores nas cinco maiores áreas de conhecimento que declararam ter doutorado na Plataforma Lattes, de acordo com um levantamento feito pelo Open Box da Ciência. Entre eles, 59,69% são homens e 40,3% são mulheres.
Entre elas, a área com maior número de especialistas é a Saúde, com 28.612 ou 36,73% do total. Nesta área as mulheres se destacam e são maioria. Elas somam 16.058 e representam 56% dos especialistas que declaram no Lattes ter doutorado.
O destaque das mulheres na área de saúde é atribuído por Fernanda Sobral, vice-presidente da Sociedade Brasileira para o Progresso da Ciência, e Natália Leão, socióloga e analista de dados do Open Box da Ciência, à cultura do cuidado, culturalmente presente na criação feminina. Mas, mesmo dentro da área de saúde, ainda há desigualdades.
"A questão do gênero começa enviesada já na escolha da profissão", afirma Natália Leão. "As mulheres tendem a escolher mais as profissões com mais maleabilidade de tempo, porque precisarão cuidar dos filhos", afirma.
A plataforma Lattes é uma base de dados alimentada pelos próprios pesquisadores com informações sobre seus currículos e grupos de pesquisa dos quais participam. De acordo com o CNPq, o currículo Lattes se tornou um padrão nacional sobre a carreira dos cientistas. O Open Box da Ciência foi lançado no dia 12/02 em São Paulo e contou com o apoio do Instituto Serrapilheira.

The Petri Dish is Malaysia’s first science newspaper. It is published by The Malaysian Biotechnology Information Centre (MABIC), a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to create public awareness of science/biotechnology.
The newspaper started as a 12-page monthly in February 2011 with a circulation of 2,000 copies and has grown into a 20-page publication with 6,000 copies circulated to key stakeholders in the fields of science/biotechnology ranging from universities to research universities, government agencies, ministries, economic corridors, state offices, biotechnology companies and cabinet members in Malaysia. With a strong belief that science should reach the public, we circulate The Petri Dish to shopping malls, private hospitals, Starbucks outlets, and secondary schools.
The Petri Dish is MABIC’s tool to create public understanding of science/biotechnology, empower decisions makers with knowledge in science/biotechnology, encourage the younger generation to pursue STEM education and careers and create a science culture among the general public
Born in November 1919, Wright was raised and educated in New York City. She was a talented artist and had a passion for landscapes, and she even studied art at Smith College before switching to medicine at the encouragement of her father.
In only three years, Wright graduated from New York Medical College where she had received a full scholarship, becoming vice-president of her class along the way. Medicine, it seems, had become a family tradition: Her father Dr. Louis T. Wright was one of the first African-American graduates of Harvard Medical School; and her grandfathers Drs. Ceah Ketcham Wright and William Fletcher Penn were graduates of Bencake Medical College and Yale Medical College respectively.
After graduation, Wright joined her father at the Cancer Research Foundation at Harlem hospital. It was here that Wright began some of her earliest cancer research work. She focused on proving the efficacy of a drug called methotrexate in patients with cancer by not only testing the drug on people but also pioneering methods to test the drug on cancer biopsies from patients in the lab. These methods formed the basis for much of modern cancer research; methotrexate is still used as a chemotherapy drug in several tumor types, including breast cancer and childhood leukemia.
Today, it would be incomprehensible for a cancer patient not to be offered chemotherapy, but Wright and her colleagues were working at a time when chemotherapy was a new and even taboo subject.To study chemotherapy was brave and revolutionary, requiring vision, perseverance, and an ability to thrive beyond the conventions of what was normal.
That Wright pioneered chemotherapy, normalized its acceptance amongst the medical community and then co-founded the whole field of medical oncology as one of the founders of ASCO is fitting. This is the type of leadership work that women and particularly women of color have done both inside and outside of the sciences

Todos estamos prestando atención a cómo se va desarrollando el #coronovarius 2019-nCoV. Es una carrera contra el tiempo no solo para las autoridades, personal médico y la población en general, especialmente en China 🇨🇳donde se encuentra la mayoría de pacientes infectados. Pero también para científicos 👩🏽🔬👨🏽🔬que están caracterizando este #virus . El 13 de febrero, el NIAID publicó las primeras imágenes del coronavirus producidas en sus laboratorios en Montana. Las imágenes obtenidas en microscopios de barrido y transmisión fueron resultado del trabajo de principalmente dos investigadoras🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️. La microscopista Elizabeth Fischer (M.A) y la investigadora Emmie de Wit (PhD), junto con la oficina de artes visuales médicas del instituto. Ellas son las mujeres detrás de estas primeras imágenes del coronavirus que ayudarán a un mejor estudio del organismo. #womeninscience#science#women#girlpower#scicomm

Teresa Porter, a MSc Soil Science student in the faculty of Land and Food Systems fell in love with soil science because physics, chemistry, and biology come alive within it. Soils are indisputably critical for ecosystem functioning and human existence. They are also, in my mind, the liminal space between life and death; in soils life dies and death turns to life. What could be more poetic and crucial?

We’ve earned our Robotics Badges! What they do! How they move! Robot designing! #ScribbleBots for the win! We learned about Annie Easley, NACA (pre-NASA) engineer, mathematician, and rocket scientist! We learned about different types and sizes of batteries, and dissembled electric toothbrushes to make our unique scribble bots. We explored what happens with different lengths of legs, different positions of the motor, and different weights of the motor- with washers, and with propellers. Their designs and observations were perfect! They began by saying, “this is so hard!!!”! They ended wanting to try more and more designs and variations! Through the excitement, we missed photos of the scribbliest moments. Thank you @girlscouts for affirming that these wonderful girls can do hard things! Thank you @camptimberridge for giving leaders the training and confidence to Bri g these activities to our girls! @girlscoutsatl#girlscoutstem#girlsinstem#womeninscience#robotics

🚺Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin🚺 (1910-1994)
English chemist whose determination of the structure of penicillin and vitamin B12 brought her the 1964 Nobel Prize for Chemistry "for her determinations by X-ray techniques of the structures of important biochemical substances." Following her award-winning work on vitamin B12, Hodgkin went on to decipher the structure of insulin in 1969, after 35 years of work. The project, which she had started in 1934, had stalled, as the available X-ray crystallography techniques were unable to cope with such a complex molecule. After decades of technique refinement, Dorothy returned to the insulin project and finally established the elusive structure. This allowed greater understanding of the molecule and improved treatment for diabetics.
Hodgkin devoted much of the latter part of her life to the cause of scientists in developing countries, especially China and India, and to improved East-West relations and disarmament. Only the steadily increasing pain and infirmity from her arthritis eventually forced her to curtail her public activities.
Durante 35 años Katsuko Saruhashi trabajó en el Instituto de Investigación Meteorológica del Ministerio de Transporte de Japón. Fue la primera mujer en recibir el premio Miyake de geoquímica y la primera en conseguir un doctorado en la Universidad de Tokio. Creó la llamada Tabla de Saruhashi, con la que se podía medir la concentración del acído carbónico en el agua, una tabla que sería usada por la oceanografía durante décadas. Se dedicó a la investigación de formas de medición de la radioactividad en el océano, y luego concentró su trabajo en la lluvia ácida como fenómeno.
Katsuko Saruhashi reivindica la labor de la mujer científica, una labor cuyos méritos han sido puestos en segundo plano, pero que hoy reconocemos por lo que son, grandes aportes al mundo de la tecnología y la ciencia.

I’m finally done with internal med (at least for the little guys)! I truly do have a large interest in this subject, but this rotation is always a bit tough. ⠀
We were on transfers this weekend and per usual we got slammed pretty hard with patients - 7 total between the five of us. My two patients were both quite interesting and they’re both doing very well right now so that’s always good news ☺️ ⠀
My goals for this rotation were really focused on learning why we do things with our patients, especially certain diagnostics and then since I’m terrible at pharmacology I wanted to get better at drugs and why we use what we do. Coming out of this week I feel much more confident in those goals, especially after having a very critical patient over the weekend. ⠀
There is still a ton of room for improvement, but I’m thankful for being involved in some cool cases this week. Overall I saw a lot of liver disease, a ureterolith, a patient with just ONE huge kidney (not my patient but super cool and he’s doing well!), primary ITP, Cushing’s, diabetes, and generalized GI disorders. ⠀
Up next I have a month of ICU, starting with 2 weeks of overnights (8p-8a) so tons of learning coming up! Tonight we’ll be riding the struggle bus, but I’m excited!⠀
Can you tell who got a haircut this weekend? (Spoiler: we both did)🤣🐶💇🏻♀️ one of us was thrilled 😄The other was not 🙊
Hope y’all are having a restful 3-day weekend! We’re currently halfway through our Infectious Diseases/Immunology block and this break (and haircut 😉) was MUCH needed 😌
A lifelong interest and concern for trees led Nalini to an academic career to study and understand trees, and to innovate activities and programs that raise awareness of the importance of trees and nature to others.
Nalini is an American ecologist who pioneered the study of Costa Rican rain forest canopies. Using mountain climbing equipment to make her ascent, Nalini first took an inventory of the canopy in 1981, followed by two more inventories in 1984.
She is best known for the “Tree Top Barbie,” where in the early 2000’s she pitched it to Mattel and they turned her down stating that they make their own barbies and how they’re not interested.
Nalini proceeded to make them herself from thrifted old Barbies, and after being featured on the New York Times word got back to Mattel and they tried to shut down Tree Top Barbie due to brand infringement.
She pushed back with, “Well you know, I know a number of journalists who would be really interested in knowing that Mattel is trying to shut down a small, brown woman who's trying to inspire young girls to go into science." They allowed her to proceed and in 2018 National Geographic partnered with Mattel to make a series of Barbies focused on exploration and science where Nalini became an advisor.
Some of her honors & awards are the Grace Hopper Lifetime Achievement Award, AAAS Public Engagement With Science Award (2011), Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2014: Blue Room, the prison room that helps inmates relax, and an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Brown University.
Vocal cord paralysis is a common pathology seen by pediatric ENTs like me. In ex-preemie infants, it is most commonly caused by damage to the left recurrent laryngeal nerve in the first few weeks of life from a commonly necessary cardiac intervention (PDA ligation)
Short term, these babies can have issues with noisy breathing (stridor), difficulty breathing and swallowing (dysphagia). Long term, these children can have weak breathy voices and exercise limitation.
The surgical intervention is called a ansa cervicalis to recurrent laryngeal nerve reanastamosis. It is usually performed around 4 years of age (can be older or younger). It is an elegant surgery with beautiful anatomy (although I may be biased). Here’s a pic of my case from last week.
Meet Courtney Driver, P.E. the Director of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities. Driver is one of the few female utilities directors in the state of North Carolina. “There have been doors that have been opened and I’ve been willing to accept the challenge. And it’s landed me in a place that I really love,” says Driver.
Driver is a graduate of NC State, and always thought she’d work as a structural engineer. She never dreamed she’d end up working in water, wastewater and solid waste, but enjoys the ability to use her passion for engineering to help the community. “We provide a critical service to our customers, imagine your day without clean water, or sanitary service or a place to take your trash, our lives would be totally different. Engineers are the ones that design those processes and do the evaluation and studies to make it work.” Driver says that when entering the field of engineering, it’s important to be open to opportunities. “You can’t be scared of trying something different or something that takes you a bit out of your comfort zone.” #wsfcutilities#eweek2020#engineering#womeninscience
We had the opportunity to do a roundtable discussion with an environmental engineer from Illinois today. She started her own firm and specializes in water treatment. It was so much fun to pick her brain and learn about her experiences as both an engineer and a business owner! It’s nice finding positive career role models to connect with.

I am incredibly proud to announce the fifth winner of my annual Dr. Patti Flint Women In Science Scholarship. Kaiah Brown is a freshman at ASU where she was accepted as 1 of 25 students into the Leadership Scholarship Program. Among her many achievements, she was student body President of her high school for three years and the President of her chapter of National Honors Society. She was varsity team captain of her basketball and volleyball teams, while also performing many community service deeds and being an advocate for domestic violence survivors. I feel confident this young woman will excel in the future study of health sciences and be a beneficial addition to any team, community, or company. I am excited to follow her along what I am sure will be a successful path!

Each child deserves a champion: a person who will never give up on them. .
Someone who will guide them and who insists they become the best they can possibly be. .
Here are some of the lovely mentors and members of WIN.
I’ve never properly introduced myself, so here goes 👋🏼 Hi! My name is Nika (knee-ka), and I’m half Persian. I have a PhD in Nutritional Sciences, and I currently work as a Postdoctoral Scholar studying novel ways to treat sepsis caused by P. aeruginosa infections (i.e. not antibiotics). For my non-science friends: think Bill Nye with more hair. I was pre-med until food allergies forced me into the kitchen. There, I fell in love with food and sharing food with others, and I decided to pursue a PhD in nutrition.
I’m very passionate about my life outside of my lab coat, a large portion of which is science policy. I currently serve as the State Regulatory Specialist for the KY Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (KAND) and recently finished a term as the Assistant Director of Legislative Affairs for NAGPS. I find the current state of the nutrition “industry” frustrating and overly complicated by those prioritizing profit over proof. Therefore, my goal is to translate my lifelong journey as a scientist into changes in nutrition policy- focusing on what’s science, not what sells.
Off-duty, I love to cook (obvi), and if I’m not in the lab or kitchen, you can find me in the gym. 2020 is all about getting out of my comfort zone, so I’m training to become a CycleBar instructor and learning Farsi. So, welcome! Now let’s eat, educate, and empower!

Shocking news this morning about pollution:
The good news: Power plants and traffic this year have fallen significantly!
The bad news: Deaths from private emissions, like from heating and burning trash, grew nearly 40% over the same period!
Air pollution KILLS when particles from burning coal, wood, or natural gas react in the atmosphere to create ozone and soot. Those particles damage airways and the cardiovascular system.
In the United States, such pollution causes many deaths each year; estimates range between 90,000 and 360,000.
Шокирующая новость этим утром о загрязнении окружающей среды:
Хорошая новость: загрязнение от электростанций и трафика (машин) в этом году значительно упали!
Плохая новость: смертность от частных выбросов, таких как отопление и сжигание мусора, выросла почти на 40% за этот же период!
Загрязнение воздуха убивает, когда частицы от сжигания угля, древесины или природного газа реагируют в атмосфере, создавая озон и сажу. Эти частицы повреждают дыхательные пути и сердечно-сосудистую систему.
⠀ В Соединенных Штатах такое загрязнение вызывает много смертей каждый год; оценки варьируются от 90 000 до 360 000. .

Let me introduce you to some members of the Paul Kenny Lab.
Here as 8 Scientists, we represent some of the best in the fields of Neuroscience and Molecular Biology. We are your Scientists studying mental health, resilience, and ways to help treat drug addiction, autism, and dementia.
I can tell you that there are days when we want to give up on Science because nature is difficult, defeating, and relentless; however, being a Scientist is also a wonderful altruistic thing because we focus on one goal: to advance Science so we can find better cures and treatments to better the health and happiness of everyone.
It is YOU that keeps us motivated.
