micropipet tip

Welcome to pipet's parlour
Mission Statement
The goal of my parlour is to provide information about biomedical research to the general public. Unfortunately, scientists often convey their research in a manner that anyone without a PhD in the respective field is absolutely lost. This is rather sad to me, so in a small way I want to help more people understand science. It is true that understanding all the details of research requires quite a bit of scientific background, but just about anyone can understand the basics. Much of the current research is very thrilling and offers hope in the treatment of many diseases; everyone should be able to share in the excitement. Another purpose of my parlour is to emphasize how research on bacteria, yeast, flies, and the like can help us understand how we, humans, function. (Yes, we share lots of genes with all those critters!) Once we better understand how things work (like yeast & flies), then we can try to figure out a way to fix things (like people) when they aren't working. Please feel free to e-mail me with comments and suggestions as to how I am doing (just edit out the NOSPAM from my e-mail address).
