Welcome to the What the pH* archive.
This is a new venture for MakerChief. The aim is to provide a few mini essays on subjects people don’t really get to see inside a lab, up a tree, on the beach or in the general world.
Expect assays, bonny colours, cells, exotic species and recipes galore.
I’ve been beavering away at a new set of simple illustrations to graphically present the notion of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and subsequent mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) damage. there are 6 images in the series that demonstrate proton flux, electron flux, ROS generation and pathways to mtDNA damage.
The full set of illustrations is available to purchase as a digital package for personal presentation use. Please <a href=”mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Mito Complex Diagrams!”>email me</a> for further details.
Another successful mission to the Borders transpired with the Bang Goes the Borders Festival proving science is for everyone – no matter how titchy they might be! Held in the gorgeous grounds of St Mary’s School in Melrose, BGTB is a free 2 day event showcasing scientists from the length and breadth of the British Isles.
Halloween is one of my personal favourite days of the year, so spending it running a workshop at one of my favourite places in Newcastle, the Centre for Life, was an absolute treat. I ran a wound science exploration station, complete with some of the most gruesome pictures you ever saw and of course, a canny few scabs in cups.
All images were taken by Elin Roberts at the Centre for Life.
