Sophie McManus

PhD student in cardiovascular sciences at Cambridge, otherwise interested in science communication, dance, drinking wine and public health. The latter are probably not mutually exclusive.

Nevena Hristozova

Nevena is a last year grad student in Vrije Universiteit Brussel, in Brussels, Belgium. She has always been fascinated with the advances of Biotechnology and biological engineering.

Chris MacAlister

From 9 to 5 he's a quality manager of veterinary laboratory but the rest of the time he's a dad and writer, exploring simple and fun ways of explaining a complicated world to his daughter in his blog: Matilda's Lab.

Amrita Sule

Amrita is currently a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University studying therapeutic targeting of DNA repair proteins in cancer. When not in the lab you will find her doing science outreach or hiking or drinking wine on her couch watching TV.

Science communication is our passion. But as fun as it is producing these shows it still takes time, effort and money.  Supporting us not only allows us to pay basic costs such as server fees, but will also give us the ability to expand into new platforms such as live video streaming.
