stem cells in their environment

welcome to our blog!

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a research lab? What you might experience during a typical day in science? Are you perhaps interested in starting a career in research - and want to know what you're getting yourself into? Or just curious about what your colleagues are spending their time with? Then this blog is for you!
