Since the church has reopened, surveys and guidance from community members of various affiliations and faiths, have helped guide the programming.

The church has reestablished a faithful presence, and become a resource for those in need.

Really chuffed to share our latest work from Sanjana Lab out in @nature today (nature.com/articles/s4158…).

We tested >12,000 genes to find positive regulators of T cell proliferation to be used for next-gen #immunotherapies.

A thread...
(2/28) T cell therapies have shown the potential to cure patients from #cancer – but even in B cell cancers, relapses outnumber cures… One of the problems is limited T cell persistence. #celltherapy #CARTcell
(3/28) We wanted to find new genes (including genes never expressed in T cells) that could improve T cell persistence. Now, the question was: should we use #crispr activation or directly deliver target genes on a #lentivirus?

#MedStudents, #Residents, #Fellows, and #Research Trainees - I recently had both a resident and fellow ask me how I got involved in research and published when I was a #trainee. I thought I would share my tips and advice in this thread. #MedTwitter #ACGME #MedStudentTwitter
1. Ask yourself👉what you want from this? To pursue research as career? To boost application for #residency #fellowship #employment? To get a recommendation letter? Regardless, aim for #publication (most value). Conference talks are cool, but publications stay on CV forever!
2. Basic science research=⬆️time+lab training vs clinical research. Study designs: RCTs, prospective, retrospective, case reports, review papers. Publishing case reports+review papers are most feasible endeavors during training! Best way to boost #publication numbers.

This scripture is not only deep, but, also very profound.

Ephesians 2:6 KJV
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2:6 MSG
Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah.
1. "He hath Raised us up..." KJV
"HE picked us up. MSG

2. "...and made us sit together" KJV
"...and set us down" MSG

3. "sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" KJV
"set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah." MSG
Truly, He raised us up. Truly, He picked us up.
Truly, He made us sit 2geda in heavenly places with Christ.
Truly, He set us down in highest heaven with Jesus

These quests. thus arise.

Are we still seated?
Or
Have we walked away because, our ways are at cross-purposes with His

Forget what they told you about #writing your #MSCA postdoctoral #fellowship!

This is what you need to have and must demonstrate in your #grant application 👇🏼 1/9🧵

Disclaimer: This is only my personal opinion as 2015-2018 MSCA Fellow and 2019 Expert Evaluator Image
Of course, you need a good research question, with interesting aims, clear objectives, and testable hypotheses.

But let's be honest, who does not have those?

All candidates you will compete with at the top of the cut will have that. So, let's move on...

2/9
Figure 1 shows the most important things you need and must demonstrate in the application:

1. A CV with content: with hard skills (A, B, C) you have learned during your research training (e.g., PhD) and that you can support with, for example, publications.

Each time my husband deployed, I had a plan for what I would do if he died.
I assumed someone in military dress would find me. At work? At home? Could be anywhere.
I would know when I saw them why they were there.
1/
In Texas, I had a plan of who I would tell them to call to be with me. These people were different at work versus home.

When I moved to Ohio, I didn't know anyone. So that person became our #hapc #fellowship coordinator.
2/
Once they got the news out, and I had calmed down, I would have to call his mom.
She mostly lived in Thailand. Her home number was best back then. I was afraid someone would answer in Thai and I wouldn't know what to do.

Lately I have been talking to some students and friends about various places to look for academic positions. Because there is no ONE-FOR-ALL space to find opportunities, here is a thread summarizing the ones I know of 1/34 #AcademicTwitter #phdchat #phd #internationalPhD
Having said that, I must emphasize that this #database is skewed towards #Asians and #Indians (and other #internationals) to study in #EU #UK or #USA in general and is certainly not exhaustive. I have no info. on #NSF grants for example or grants within India. 2/34
Most importantly, I’m hoping this thread helps #colouredwomeninSTEM & #WomeninSTEM, please feel free to RT. And as a #biologist, I am more aware of databases in #ecology, #wildlife, #evolution and #conservation circles, feel free to add more and share. Let’s dive right in! 3/34

(2/13) In #prostatecancer cell lines & human tissue, co-targeting #PIM & #PI3K #kinases seems promising!

We reckon ~20% of prostate cancer patients could benefit from this approach in future & these tend to be the sicker patients.

Scroll for #science!

nature.com/articles/s4159…
(3/13) Fig1a:

From publicly available data we see that some patients overexpress either the #PIM pathway, the #PI3K pathway, or both. Each of these targets have inhibitors in development, that could theoretically be of benefit to any of these patient groups when combined 🤞

Seeing #TolkienEveryday posts from @sunamiami @The_Tolkienist and @MLCorbier have inspired me to do my own!

So here it goes! #TolkienEveryday Day 1: I recently recived the newest @DelReyBooks PB set! Even though I usually stick with UK versions I had to get these beauties! Image
#TolkienEveryday Day 2: Released just last month @JohnGarthWriter The Worlds of J.R.R Tolkien has to be one of the most beautiful books on Tolkien to date with stunning illustrations on every page, as well as being chalked full of great information on the professor’s influences!

We are monitoring the less important things in life.

1.
what isof utmost importance to you?

What do you monitor?

Yes, We monitor almost everything in life;

From the petrol in our car to that in our generators.

We monitor the money in our banks as well as that in our pocket.
2.
#We monitor our performances at work and those of our subordinates...

#We monitor our health,

#we monitor the temperature gauge on the dashboard of our cars, monitor and gauge the air in our tyres.
3.
#We monitor virtually everything and take action(s) where necessary to ensure things go on smoothly. 

#This action(s) gives us great satisfaction, yet, the most important things are left unmonitored.

#Our spiritual gauge has been reading zero for a longtime unattended to.

PSA for funded #PhD students:

If you blindly throw the numbers from your Form 1098-T into tax software or over to a tax preparer, odds are that you are paying TOO MUCH in income tax.

No #gradstudent can afford to do that!

#AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #gradschool

1/
Of course, I can’t say this is true for everyone, but I’ve seen it time and time again for fully funded graduate students, particularly those whose student health fees and insurance premiums are paid on their behalf.

2/
Here’s why:

The IRS allows you to use your “qualified education expenses” (QEEs) e.g., tuition and some fees/expenses, to reduce your tax liability through 1 or 2 education tax benefits.

But what shows up on Form 1098-T in Box 1 is not (necessarily) the sum of your QEEs.

OK this may seem weird but it’s actually really important.

#PhD-specific tax info coming your way!

@AcademicChatter This thread is for any US citizen/resident #PhD trainee on a 1-year+ external #fellowship (e.g., #NSFGRFP, #NDSEG), training grant (e.g., #NIH), internal fellowship, etc.

@AcademicChatter If your #stipend or salary is not reported on a W-2 at tax time…

(most universities use the term “fellowship” this way, but there are exceptions)

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
