Sometimes it may even feel like the most reproducible thing about science is its ability to lead young researcher to the brink of despair. In this blog post, I would like to share my own experiences after one year in grad school, and how my greatest challenges so far were those I expected the least.

So today I will be talking about some sciency stuff because our DNA Robotics consortium is themed on DNA Nanotechnology. So, let’s slide along the strands of Functional DNA Nanotechnology (awkward attempt at generating humour):

Hi readers!

Now that we all were given the chance to introduce ourselves… let’s move for the series of free-topic posts! This is going to be interesting 😉

In this post I want to highlight why I think the research that all of us are doing here and therefore, my job, is essentialand why it should be supported more than ever.
