I’ve had such an incredible time at the Australasian Society for Immunology 2018 and sad that it’s finally come to an end. . To be completely honest, I had very mixed feelings about attending and presenting at such a hardcore Immunology conference as I personally find Immunology terrifying! However, the science, support and the community has been outstanding. . I have left in awe of the high calibre of science being performed, techniques being developed and the discoveries being translated into real life medical treatments. . One particular stand out has been meeting and hearing from young Aussie researchers. I have never met more ambitious and determined scientists which has really inspired me to push myself more and build up that science confidence. . Huge thanks to the organisers for giving me the opportunity to present in both the Sci Comm and New Investigator session, among the future leaders of Immunology. #ASI2018WA . #immunology #conference #science #sciencelife #research #womeninstem #presentation #celldeath #ASI #scientist #lifeofascientist #shecanstem #scientistsofinstagram #immunologist

Exercise helps to eliminate toxic proteins from muscles. A new animal-based study has found that daily exercise helps to facilitate the elimination of proteins and organelles in the muscles that are no longer functional. Scientific Reports, September 2018, reports that the removal of these components is vital, because when they accumulate, they become toxic and contribute to muscle cell impairment and death. The principal investigator, Dr. Julio Cesar Batista Ferreira explains, "Imagine the muscles working in a similar manner to a refrigerator, which needs electricity to run. If the signal ceases because you pull the plug on the fridge or block the neurons that innervate the muscles, before long, you find that the food in the fridge and the proteins in the muscles will start to spoil at different speeds according to their composition." #exercise #muscle #celldeath #toxic #recovery #musclepain #musclepainrelief #painrelief #healthylifestyle #healthylivivg #healthylife
Pink Pepper. Let’s look at the chemistry. It is high in limonene, which is cleansing and uplifting. It also has alpha phellandrene for cellular health, as well as alpha-pinene for cellular rejuvenation and respiratory support . Pink pepper helps to protect and nurture cells and cause unhealthy cells to die. It encourages a healthy cell cycle and death known as apoptosis. Any ideas what I am talking about when we want unhealthy cells to die? 🤔 Yeah, this oil is amazing. 🤩 With my personal health history, this is a powerful oil for me that I take internally daily . This makes it a perfect companion to use in combo with our DDR Prime to support our cells and encourage cell apoptosis . Not only is this oil changing the lives of those who use it, but it is also changing the lives of those who harvest it. doTERRA ’s co-impact sourcing supports these communities with schools and water systems. 🌎This has allowed an income stream for those in Kenya . I love the heart of this company, and I love these beautiful oils. 💜 What is your favorite way to use Pink Pepper?
Cryolipolysis is a treatment used to destroy fat cells by freezing. The functional principle is the controlled application of cooling, within the temperature range of +5 to −11 °C, for the non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, in order to reshape the contours of the body. The degree of exposure to cooling causes the apoptosis (cell death) of subcutaneous fat tissue, without apparent damage to the overlying skin. #Cryolipolysis #fatfreezing #controlledapplicationcooling #non_invasive #fatdepositsreduction #reshape #contoursbody #apoptosis #celldeath #angelasbelletoi
Apoptosis or necrosis? Apoptosis and necrosis are the two major pathways of cell death. Apoptosis is the programmed cell-death form. The necrosis is caused by factors external to the cell, such as infection, toxins or trauma. We preconditioned the tumor-cells with a Caspase 3 -inhibitor (apoptosis inhibiton) , Necrostatin1 (necrosis inhibiton), and after we treated the cells with an antitumor chemotherapeutic agent for 22 hours. Both cell-death ways in all of the cases could be detected, but we found differences in their proportions according to treatments.

This time Fuzzy Synapse came up with the idea of showing the phenomenon happening in all our body called " APOPTOSIS"!! It refers to the "programmed cell death" which happens normally in our body to keep a balance with the number of new cells arising every day. Also its helpful to clean up the damaged cells. Defects in cleaning up can cause many diseases. Isn't it amazing how defined the cellular functions are to keep us running! :) #scicomm #fuzzysynapse #apoptosis #celldeath #cells #biology #cellbiology #healthy #unhealthy #cleanup #important #digitalart #sciart #sciartist #illustrations #illustrator #sciencecartoons #science #sciencemeetarts
Yesterday I did an experiment, it didn’t work... but at least I was rockin a full length zebra jumpsuit 🦓 🤷🏼‍♀️ . Last week the boss put up a quote in lab meeting stating ‘I never fail, I either learn or succeed’. This is such a valuable lesson to learn, and something that my supervisor emphasised throughout my entire PhD . If it didn’t work, then why? What does it mean? What can you test differently next time? How else can you ask this question? . Interpreting ‘negative’ results like this is essential to developing our critical thinking and problem solving however, that’s not to say we still can’t be disappointed when things don’t work. . #sciencelife #womeninstem #research #academia #science #scientist #scientistswhoselfie #scientistsofinstagram #shecanstem #stem #celldeathresearch #celldeath #biology #blonde #someblondescientist
When an unwanted or diseased cell dies via a process called apoptosis, the cell’s powerhouses - called mitochondria - are punctured, a key step towards the demise of the cell. This movie shows the moment that proteins in purple form a pore in the surface of a mitochondrion (blue), allowing the contents (red) to escape. Our researchers have just made an important discovery about how this pore is formed.

This single celled organism i slowly dissolving. This is due to the extreme temperature difference between outside (2 degrees celcius) and the temperature in the light of my microscope. This sudden temperature change can sometimes lead to an unstable cell membrane which ruptures resulting in cell death. #celldeath #life #microscope #microscopy #ecology #nature #biology #microbiology #darkfieldmicroscopy #science #dissolving #underthemicroscope #micro #microbiologia

Staining my cells 🖤 . A key experiment for my research into cell death are engulfment assays - assays where we can observe and quantify the engulfment of apoptotic cells by phagocytes. In other words, measure the ability of alive cells to eat dying cells. . To do this we stain our dying cells with a dye called CypHer. The cool thing about CypHer is that it will only fluoresce in acidic environments such as the phagolysosome (the stomach of the engulfing cell) which allows us to specifically measure engulfment. . Today I’ve been trying to establish a new in vivo assay looking at the engulfment by lung alveolar epithelial cells - what have you been up to? . #science #research #cellbiology #biology #celldeath #researcher #womeninstem #sciencelife #scientist #latrobe #lablife #cellculture
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive body contouring treatment used to reduce fat cell volume by freezing. The method involves the controlled application of cooling for localized reduction of fat deposits. The degree of exposure to cooling causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without damage to the overlying skin. Evidence of studies supports the effectiveness of Cryolipolysis reducing subcutaneous fat tissue by up to 20%. The picture above shows the process of apoptosis (cell death), which occurs after treatment. We are proud to offer this treatment at the following rates: . . ▪️$199 Per Treatment Area (includes both sides of the body as required) ▪️$350 for 2 Treatments ▪️$450 for 3 Treatments ▪️$700 for 4 Treatments ▪️$1000 for 6 Treatments ▪️$1400 for 8 Treatments . .

Another panel from Terra Prima. Back in Virginia Tech I had a magnet with the same message as the poster on the left. It was on the incubator were I kept the experiments that very often caused the cells to randomly die 😫 I always thought the magnet would make a nice poster, so I gave one to Claudia #webcomic #terraprima #digitaldrawing #autodesksketchbook #photoshop #biotechne #apoptosis #celldeath

Australian researcher, Dr. McCarthy and his team were surprised to find that Shiraz berries start to shrivel at a nearly exact calendar date - between 90 and 95 days after flowering. This finding lead to current research on berry cell death. _____________________ Hear the whole interview on our Sustainable Winegrowing Podcast. Link in our bio.

Starting the day off with Yoga is setting the right tone for this week of fasting. I'm supporting my quasband in his very first water fast for Health. Before you scoff, check out the research. It's definitely not for everyone [and not for weightloss reasons] and needs some serious Positive Mental Attitude! But when things feel like you can't complete them, ASK YOURSELF: what if I HAD to?!! In this instance: what if there was no food available. For how long could I last?** **I'm not a credentialed Scientist and in no way am I recommending this for anyone else, but if you want to learn more, I can point you in the right direction [NOT some fitness blog!]

Capsaicin in chillies kills breast cancer cells. Researchers from Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany, treated human samples of breast cancer cells with Capsaicin to dissect its ability to destroy them. They found that Capsaicin induces apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells. When capsaicin reaches a cancer cell, it attaches to the cell surface and switches on a cell receptor, a protein expressed/produced on the cell surface, called TRPV1. The receptor TRPV1 is a calcium/sodium channel that controls them go in and out of the cancer cell. When TRPV1 is switched on by capsaicin, the cancer cell is sent into overdrive and starts to self-destruct by induced apoptosis (programmed cell death). The researchers have found a significant reduction in cell proliferation after capsaicin stimulation was observed.This study was carried out by scientists from: Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany Hospital Herz-Jesu-Krankenhaus Dernbach, Germany Centre of Genomics in Cologne, Germany ******************* Read more on our blog: http://www.canceredinstitute.org/cancer-blog-english/-capsaicin-in-chillies-kills-breast-cancer-cells #canceredinstitute ******************* #capsaicin #breastcancer #coloncancer #pancreaticcancer #cancercells #apoptosis #celldeath #cancercelldeath #cancercell #germany #bochum #unibochum #brustkrebs #krebs #gesundheit #cologne #unicologne #Koln #germany #deutschland #cancerawareness #cancerresearch #cancerprevention #cancerpatients #cancersurvivors #cancereducation #cancer #health #food #pepper #canceredinstitute

ONE YEAR of science-instagramming! So, what have I learnt? . I can’t believe a whole year has gone by since I made the leap into the #scicomm world of Instagram. I have learnt so much and truly value the connections I have formed with so many of you. However, there is one stand-out lesson I have learnt, and that is the importance of self-reflection. . Until now, I would have never sat back and reflected upon an experience, an experiment, an achievement or a failure, at least not in much depth - who has time for that? However, documenting my experiences here and talking about them with all of you has shown me the importance of these moments. Reflecting back on each day or week is vital for us to progress - how else do we learn without analysing our mistakes and failures, and what is it all for if we can’t enjoy those rare moments on top? . I’ve certainly celebrated this milestone by making the most out of the long weekend (it’s been a very long Monday sobering up). I hope you guys had a good weekend and THANK YOU so much for being here with me! Here’s to another year to come ✌🏼 . #sciencelife #science #scientistsofinstagram #scienceselfie #latrobeuni #lims #uni #university #research #researcher #biochemistry #cellbiology #celldeath #celldeathresearch

#Celltember 22 Cell proliferation and cell death are natural processes, both important for the correct organization and function of unicellular and multicellular organisms. Although they oppose in function, they act in a coordinated manner. A clear example is the tissue regeneration: when a cell dies it is eliminated and frequently replaced, maintaining a relatively stable number of cells and with it, the tissue function. Although death is only one, the context in which this happens can vary, being either programmed (at the end of the lifespan) or "accidental". Regarding the mechanisms, there are 3 main routes: apoptosis, necrosis and autophagy. Apoptosis is a programmed cell death and can be triggered by external or internal stimuli. Cellular stress can lead to apoptosis and is induced when cells are damaged beyond repair. The absence of stimuli can also promote this type of cell death. For example, during the development of the nervous system, when about half of the neurons die. Apoptosis can also be induced by oncogenes as a safe guard mechanism against cancer development. Necrosis is characterized by the rapid loss of plasma membrane Integrity and the structure of organelles. Although necrosis can occur as a consequence of irreparable cell damage, there is at least one route of active or programmed necrosis, the so-called necroptosis. Autophagy is mainly a survival mechanism engaged in response to a metabolic crisis (energy and essential molecules deprivation) or to remove damaged organelles and protein aggregates. During this process, parts of the cytosol and specific organelles are engulfed by a double-membrane structure (autophagosome) for degradation and recycling. Excessive autophagy can induce cell death. Life is a constant cycles of rebirth and death. It is thanks to this continuous cell death that living beings can harmoniously develop and adapt to their environment.
