(Not so) Live from the Lab: Our Talk Series is on YouTube
As a collective effort to find the best way to talk about our research with our peers, last December we organised a series of live talks to try and answer the question: What did animal ancestors look like? In keeping with the wretched zeitgeist of 2020, we did this...
Live from the Lab: Stories of Animal Ancestors
Have you ever wanted to travel back in time and understand how animal life came to be? This series might be your best chance. Join researchers as they ask the same overarching question: what did animal ancestors look like? In an attempt to answer this question, we will discuss modern methods in science, take a look at the fossil record, how cells shape the bodies of different animals and how they evolve. Bring along your burning questions on the origins and evolution of animal life and join in the discussion.

A (first) year in a life of a PhD student
Ever wondered how the first year of a science PhD student can look like? Is it even a job? Literature review, finding keywords, getting to know the studied animals, sometimes frustrating outcome of experiments, learning how to analyze the data and more.
Is there use in the study of evolution?
Evolution is a fascinating topic! It is often defined as a scientific framework that attempts to explain the origin of life and its diversity. Explaining the possible origins of life and the diverse forms extinct (of past) and extant (of present) however, presents a...
