Reproducibility Research by Cultured (Part of Velocity Science) at Problem Lab @ University of Waterloo
Had a wonderful opportunity to be interviewed by two very bright students associated with the Problem Lab at University of Waterloo. Cultured is a Velocity Science start-up that is awarded up to $5,000 by Problem Lab at the University of Waterloo to research about the problem of irreproducible life science research and to develop solutions to improve the reproducibility of life science research at the source. The problem of irreproducibility in life science research wastes research funding and time, resulting in delays in delivering health benefits to the population, disseminating knowledge and progressing science.
Skype a Scientist: public outreach program connects scientists around the world with classrooms of students
Excellent public outreach program, where any scientist can be connected to a classroom of students anywhere in the world (as long as you speak their language) for an hour session on Skype. Wonderful opportunity for every scientist to reach out to a roomful of students you may inspire to one day become scientists! Students get face time with a real scientist, while you get a chance to practice engaging an audience of JK-12 grade with your research!
oCUBE: Ontario Consortium of Biology Educators
Friendliest pandora box of pedagogical practices in university/college biology education. Excellent resource aimed at implementing evidence-based pedagogical practices in your teaching! Attend the annual UnConference if you get a chance - the community immediately pulls you in with their warmth and you may even get to facilitate a discussion!
Small Pond Science blog
This is a blog I've followed for a while at the advice of my PhD supervisor. Great mix of newsworthy mentions, great personable experiences of several faculty members in various areas and career stages of biology. Worth a click!

Dennis Kolosov, biology, The Role of Tight Junction Proteins in Regulating Epithelial Permeability in Fishes
"Kolosov’s research examines the composition of tight junctions in teleost fish, and consists of a number of molecular level experiments conducted at York. A better understanding of these proteins is an important contribution to a number of research areas including gene cloning and pharmacology, among others.
“I feel very lucky to have students in my lab like Dennis,” said supervisor Scott Kelly.
“It’s easy enough to do the work you’re excited about,” Kolosov said, “it’s harder to do the stuff so that it excites other people.” In addition to his thesis, Kolosov has published in 10 academic journals in the field of comparative and epithelial physiology, and is the lead or second author on two invited review articles in international journals."
