Designing a Sustainable Future – An Interview with Max Bergman
Prof. Dr. Max Bergman seeks answers to key questions on the challenges set out by the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). He is one of the Chairs of the 8th World Sustainability Forum (WSF) that will take place 14–19 September 2020 in Geneva, Switzerland. The WSF is an event that “encourages participants to go beyond […]More Info
Decoding Genomes of Small Species Using a Reduced Amount of DNA and Less Time
This is thanks to a new sequencing workflow presented in a recently published paper in Genes which removes some steps from traditional sequencing, and this results to a smaller loss of DNA. Researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute (University of Cambridge), and Pacific Biosciences have read the whole genetic code of a single tiny mosquito […]More Info
Did you know that the environment can interact with our genes?
The perinatal environment influences brain development and lifelong function, as well as somatic and mental health outcomes according to a recently published paper in Genes Slightly strange but true, the environment can interact with our genes. This is the main conclusion of a recently published paper in Genes in which the authors, researchers at the […]More Info
The links between mortality, and red and processed meat consumption
The highest intakes of red and processed meat are associated with an 18–51% higher risk of all-cause mortality compared to zero-intake according to a recently published paper in Nutrients. Over the last fifty years, global meat consumption has increased across the world. In the United States, for instance, red meat is the most commonly consumed […]More Info
Women in Science: Interview with Sylvia Beyer, researcher and guest editor in Social Sciences
In a previous post, we looked at the under-representation of women in research in our interview with Neus Feliu, from the University of Hamburg. We continue this series of interviews with female researchers with Silvia Beyer, who works as a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and guest edits the Special Issue of Social Sciences called “Women in Male-Dominated Domains”. 1.

Women in Science: Interview with Neus Feliu, researcher and guest editor in Nanomaterials
Why are there fewer women than men in science? Female scientists are under-represented in research, being only a third of researchers globally. Despite the progress in gender equality during the last decades, advances have been slow and there are still disparities around the world. We want to initiate a series of interviews with female researchers […]More Info
