A Voice for Diversity in Science
Only 17% of the English-language biographies on Wikipedia are about women – but the statistic won’t stay that low for long if Dr Jess Wade has her way. A passionate advocate for diversity in science, Jess balances her work as an award-winning physicist at Imperial College London with her role as a ‘Wikipedian’, creating and uploading the biographies of underrepresented groups in science.
International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium
The fight against cancer is going global. The National Cancer Institute’s International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium brings together researchers from around the world to conduct proteogenomics research and develop a comprehensive international proteogenomic atlas that would represent the diversity of people and commonly diagnosed cancers in their unique populations. To break down silos, data produced by ICPC institutions is made available to the public.
Cancer: Who Lives? Who Dies?
Ted Goldstein is a Silicon Valley tech executive turned cancer researcher. After a successful career and an instrumental role as top executive at Apple, Ted returned to College to obtained his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Biomolecular Engineering to study cancer and to approach the disease the way software engineers approach difficult problems.
RNA No Longer Lost in Translation
"Stress granules" belong in the cellular toolbox of survival strategies. Proteins and RNA huddle together into membrane-less blobs when the cell is threatened, a mechanism which is also critical for proper maternal mRNA storage, synaptic plasticity, tumor progression and neurodegeneration. These previously invisible basic genetic processes have been captured for the first time, using fluorescence microscopy.

The Microbiome: How Might Gut Bacteria Help Treat Cancer?
The bacteria, fungi and viruses that live inside us are collectively called our microbiome, and they play an important role in our health. But scientists also think that the bacteria in our guts might help some cancers develop and change how these cancers respond to treatment.
