Back to work for a crucial year for UK Science, Research & Innovation & my core Missions:

🌏 ScienceSuperpower🧑🏽‍🔬
💥Innovation Nation👷🏼

Here are some of the Priorities in the NewYear in-tray:

1. Horizon: continue to push for UK association, alongside a bold GlobalBritain PlanB
2. Research Ecosystem: implementing the Nurse, Grant & Tickell Reviews of the UK Research landscape to
- improve career paths
- reduce bureaucracy
- accelerate decision-making
- boost UK global strengths in attracting top talent in
science🧬 & innovation💥
3. Oversee establishment of the new UK Advanced Research & Innovation Agency (ARIA) as the UK’s “Science Satellite” to ensure the UK stays on the frontline of exploring new ways of doing new science:

May 2021 report by the #WEF, "How to Build #Trust in #Vaccines seeks to understand how these online conversations can influence our #beliefs around vaccines. [] in partnership w/ the Vaccine Confidence Project, researchers used #AI tools to analyse online discussions." #Biotech
"The report finds that above all, we need to encourage #language that breeds #trust. The researchers say, “trust in the individuals, #institutions & overall #system that together discover, develop & deliver vaccines is fundamental to vaccine confidence.

#4IR #Reset #Biotech
Foreword: "Low #vaccine #confidence has become a real challenge for governments..."

The #WEF & Vaccine Confidence Project partnered with NetBase Quid ["How can we help drive your business?"]

Critical thread on "Self-Spreading #Vaccines"

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for #Health Security: Technologies to Address - Global Catastrophic Biological Risks, Oct 9, 2018

#biosurveillance "biological disruption" "bioterrorism events #bioengineering
"As a subset of infectious #disease emergencies, global catastrophic biological risk (#GCBR) is a special category of risk involving #biological #agents—whether naturally emerging or reemerging, deliberately created & released, or #laboratory engineered & escaped—..."

#COVID19
This "could lead to sudden, extraordinary, widespread disaster beyond the collective capability of national & int. orgs & the #privatesector to control."

Great to have our work on bacterial attachment in stent-on-chips published in @micromach_mdpi at mdpi.com/2072-666X/11/4…!

Obstructions of the ureter can be caused by a number of factors and affect the physiological flow of urine from kidney to bladder. To overcome this issue, ureteral stents which have side-holes bypassing urine from ureter to stent and viceversa, are clinically implanted. 2/7 Image
However, stents are prone to complications leading to infection. We employed microfluidics to mimic flow dynamics in ureteral stents in different obstruction (obs) conditions: 1) unobstructed 2) obs at proximal side-hole 3) obs in between side-holes 4) obs next to side-hole. 3/7 Image

"The Lancet‘s fraudulent concealment of genetics, and its own conflicting interests, while condemning #coronavirus conspiracy theorists, gives the appearance of “crisis capitalism,” and complicity in the COVID-19-SARS/HIV-1 #Wuhan ‘Event 201‘ biocrime." Image
The 'Scientific' arguments going on behind the scenes on #Covid_19 should be a wake-up call to the 'TRUE' dangers the world is being exposed to! 'BOTH' sides of the argument are labelling the other 'Conspiracy Theorists'. Only one of them can be! Image
The Lancet writes that "Conspiracy theories do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice...." #Covid_19 Image

Cool engineering of light-responsive circuits for “IPTG-mimic” induction - induce from the lac operon with darkness. Potentially better dynamic control with titrated light, and equal or better yield #SynBio #Bioengineering biorxiv.org/content/10.110… @javalosLAB @SincerelyMakoto
Hijacking the pDawn light-inducible system to control lacI with light (dark = induced expression due to repression of lacI) - key further improvements were destabilization of lacI, and positive feedback loop for lacI expression in presence of light.
“OptoLAC” circuits worked in different medias (rich and minimal), different strain backgrounds (including BL21 for protein production), and scalable into bioreactors (2L). Checked for both control of chemical production and protein production. Great system!

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily
