Science is never finished 🧫🔬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The time ⏰ it takes to get a PhD varies greatly depending on where you are. In the UK 🇬🇧 it usually takes 3-4 years however a lot of people are only funded for 3. For me, I was lucky to get a 4 year MRes/PhD studentship and because I continued in the same lab after my MRes I’ve had 4 years of funding 💰 on the same project. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Im currently in the final 6 months 🙀 of my funding and hoping to get everything completed before my funding runs out. But at the same time I’m struggling to decide when to draw a line under my work 🤷🏼‍♀️🔚 and finish in the lab. Science is never finished because there are always more questions to ask 🔄. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On the one hand I’m super excited about finishing and getting my degree 👩🏼‍🎓. But the thought of leaving loads of questions unanswered makes me a bit sad. I’ve worked hard over the last 3.5 years and this project feels like my baby 🤱🏼. Let’s hope whoever takes over the project is as motivated as I am and wants to find out the answers‼️.

As a woman, being proud of yourself and believing you are enough is an act of social and political resistance. 💫 - JJ
.
Fun fact: @curtsceneit first asked me to do a photoshoot over a year ago and I initially avoided him for so long (LOL) thinking I wasn’t “picture-esq” enough. It’s so interesting how we compare ourselves to what we see and curate our own perception of beauty. But I stopped caring and I looveee it. Moral of the story, we all have insecurities. No judging + comparing, just do wat u want boo..

Today I had the opportunity to teach fourth and fifth graders about STEM and Space. The students learned about entrepreneurship, global markets, and how to make a resume! Almost half of the students said they wanted to work on sending humans to Mars with me - and many of the students made their resumes about Engineering. One of the students wanted to be an actress and loved to hear I have been in TV Shows she has seen! I felt really inspired to continue to follow my dreams of a STEM TV show after this experience

Thank you to @juniorachievementusa and @lockheedmartin for allowing me to volunteer! I love teaching young minds 🙌.

Polymerase chain reaction - PCR!
◽️ This is a technique we use to amplify DNA fragments for various experiments. ◽️ For me, most often I do PCR to amplify a region of a gene I want to clone into a vector and express in cells later. The general idea is that you have template DNA, primers which recognize the ends of the fragment you want to amplify and q polymerase that adds base pairs to make the full DNA sequence you want. This generates thousands to millions of copies of DNA! ◽️ PCR is often used for other things such as medical diagnostics, genotyping organisms, forensic investigations and many general laboratory applications. It truly is a very handy technique and one that most people who have ever worked in a lab would have done! ◽️ Something I’ve always found funny is how in TV shows when somebody does a PCR it takes about 5 seconds, the DNA just goes in a machine and then a computer gives you the answer. This is definitely not how it works 😂 we use a thermocycler that changes the temperature and then we usually run the samples out on a gel to look and the size of the band we got ◽️ Have you ever done a PCR?.
