Since my Instagram has become about 90% work-related in the past few years and I’ve been noticeably absent as of late due to personal reasons... I thought I’d tell people that the best way to still follow along with #InvertebratesRule ventures and all the marine invertebrate nerd wonderful-ness is currently on Twitter @SERCInvasions ! 🐙🔬👩🏽🔬 #ScientistsInTheField#WomenInScience#Science
When I was a kid, this was my happy place. The Liberty Science Center was not only the place that fostered my passion and intellectual curiosity for the life sciences, it was also the place where I saw my first surgery! I'll never forget when I was in high school and one of the science teachers invited me to go with her class on a field trip to watch a live Kidney Transplant. We walked into an auditorium in the Liberty Science Center, which was filming the Kidney Transplant live from a hospital 10 miles away. They had a microphone in case anybody wanted to ask the surgeon any questions. You wouldn't believe the kinds of questions students would ask ("does it smell bad?", "does it freak you out to see all that blood?", etc). It definitely made for a good laugh. It's amazing when I'm in the OR with medical students watching them talk to the attending and thinking about how far they must've come from the time when they were young high students asking silly questions. I can't wait to see the kind of person I will become as I continue on with my medical education. ☺️💉🏥❤️😷 #LibertyScienceCenter#Science#Museum#GrowingUp#Curiosity#NewJersey#NJ#Nephrology#HighSchool#KidneyTransplant#Nephrology#Surgery#Surgeon#Scientist#LivingtheDream#LovingIt

Schizophrenia Disrupts Brain’s Entire Communication System
It is the largest analysis of “white matter” (fatty brain tissue enabling neurons to talk to each other) differences in a psychiatric disorder to date and was made possible by a federal grant to the Keck School of Medicine of USC. The study displaces a theory that schizophrenia manifests due to wiring problems in only the prefrontal and temporal lobes. These front-facing areas of the brain are responsible for personality, decision-making and hearing perception. 📚🔬💫✨🌟⭐️🔭🌠🌌▶️ Schizophrenia Disrupts Brain's Entire Communication System neurosciencenews.com/communication-… #schizophrenia#neuroscience#science @neurosciencenew 📷 Fiber pathways in the brain are altered in schizophrenia, a mental illness in which patients may experience hallucinations, psychosis and depression.

Between more than a dozen buildings where Natural Sciences research and learning takes place are spaces where our Texas Science community explores, investigates and engages with life all around in the great outdoors. Natural habitats like Waller Creek and the UT turtle pond offer a scientific sandbox, where students of biology and marine science have up close encounters with the many creatures that live on campus.
What Lurks Below NASA’s Chamber A?
Hidden beneath Chamber A at the Johnson Space Center is an area engineers used to test critical contamination control technology that has helped keep our James Webb Space Telescope clean during cryogenic testing. This voluminous area is called the plenum, and it supports the weight of the chamber. Before Webb’s cryogenic testing in the chamber commenced, engineers ventured to the plenum’s depths to test NASA-developed technology designed to remove molecular contaminants from the air.
This image shows Nithin Abraham, a coatings engineer at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, part of a contamination control team tasked with ensuring Webb remains as clean as possible during its testing. Abraham is the principal investigator of the coatings research team that has developed and tested a highly porous material called molecular adsorber coating (MAC), which can be sprayed onto surfaces to passively capture contaminants that could be harmful to Webb’s optics and science instruments.
