Nuffield Research Placement 2017

Last summer, Abbey spent 4 weeks in Kevin Chalut's group for her Nuffield research placement. During that time, she worked with Celine Labouesse and other members of the group on the differentiation dynamics of mouse embryonic stem cells on custom-made soft substrates. Abbey had the opportunity to learn how to fabricate soft and stiff hydrogels, take care of cells, and use standard tools such as flow cytometry and immunostaining.

It was great to have Abbey work with me, and it really helped it getting some projects going which might have otherwise stayed shelved. I am grateful for her help, and enjoyed the opportunity to discuss my work with a non-specialist science enthusiast.
