The Science Innovation Union (SIU) at the University of Oxford hosted their first ever Art in Science Competition recently, with the aim to connect diverse scientific communities and provide scientists the chance of showcasing their research in the form of artwork. Sponsors, ONI, were at the award ceremony that took place on 10th May at the Department of Earth Science, University of Oxford.
The International Society for Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV) annual conference took place in Kyoto from 24-28th April 2019. On behalf of the ONI team that had the pleasure to attend, I summarize here my impressions from the meeting, how the extracellular vesicles (EV) data generated at ONI was received and the latest developments taking place in the EV field.
The Biophysical Society (BPS) Annual Meeting brings together scientists working on a wide range of topics and attracts participants across different disciplines like physics, biology, chemistry, and computational sciences. The BPS annual meeting, therefore, offers a unique opportunity to engage in interesting conversations and get exposed to scientific questions from various perspectives. We also find that it is a great place for interdisciplinary interactions, especially between biologists and physicists, which leads to a better understanding of each other’s needs and research challenges.
