The Genetics of Neurodegeneration With Professor John Hardy


At the British Neuroscience Association (BNA)’s Festival of Neuroscience in April 2019, we were lucky enough to sit down with some influential neuroscientists to discuss their work. Here we interview University College London’s John Hardy, whose work into the genetics of neurodegenerative disorders saw him share the Brain Prize in 2018.


Gray Matter vs White Matter


The brain is an immensely complex structure, but there are ways we can divide up its anatomical structure into more discrete parts. One common divider is to separate the brain’s gray and white matter. But what are these two structures? How different are they from each other? How significant, and physiologically relevant, is this divide?


Why Science Can’t Afford Mistakes When It Comes to Cell Line Authenticity


Having strains and cell lines that have been checked and confirmed to be what it says on the tube is invaluable to scientific validity and integrity, saving untold time and money. We spoke to Mindy Goldsborough, Ph.D., Chief Science and Technology Officer, VP and General Manager, ATCC Cell Systems about the importance and challenges of maintaining authenticated cell lines for scientific research.
