Forster is constantly scoping trends and developments in technology that shape the way we communicate with each other, to ensure we’re keeping abreast of opportunities for our clients and the people’s lives we’re all working to protect and improve. Nesta’s FutureFest 2015 was recently held in London, and we were there to learn and emerge ourselves in the world of ‘future thinking’. I’m taking part in Neurosis, billed as ‘the world’s first neuro-driven thrill ride’. It’s an exhibit at Futurefest 2015, a weekend-long event that aims to give visitors a […]

Industrial Postdoc is Right For You?

PHDs don’t feel quite prepared to go o straight from academia into industry, here is a half-way point. There are certain science and biotechnology companies work in patnership with academia to create  industrial postdoc positions. In recent years, postdoctoral opportunities in industry have been on the rise. Notorious for higher pay, access to greater resources, and providing a leg up for future industry positions, these positions offer many advantages over traditional academic postdocs. However, they are not for everyone; certain aspects are cause for caution. Timothy Allsopp heads up the […]

The future of Biodiversity in Brazil

By |2015-03-26T15:10:03+05:30March 26th, 2015|Categories: News|0 Comments

The environmental service provided by the great bio-diversity of Amazonian forests is one of several factors leading to the conclusion that much greater efforts are warranted to reduce the destruction of these forests. Risks to biodiversity in Amazonian forests include deforestation, logging, fire, fragmentation, depletion of fauna, invasion by exotic species, and climate change. Financial values assigned to biodiversity depend strongly on the purposes of valuation. Utilitarian benefits include the values of presently marketed and presently unexploited forest products, and the monetary value of environmental benefits. Brazil tried to lead the world […]

Ancient parasites hitched rides to European travelers

After analyzing 500 years in the Christian quarter of the old city of Jerusalem, researchers found evidence of some species of intestinal parasites that seem to have been “imported” from medieval Europe. Some of the earliest evidence of a human parasite infection has been unearthed in an ancient burial site in Syria. The egg of a parasite that still infects people today was found in the burial plot of a child who lived 6,200 years ago in an ancient farming community. “The analysis of this fifteenth century latrine in Jerusalem […]

Increasing research and development into fossils

By |2015-03-24T11:41:04+05:30March 24th, 2015|Categories: Research|0 Comments

A scientists team, led by Christopher Beard, professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Kansas, shed light on an otherwise poorly documented interval of evolutionary history through fossils discovered in the Libyan desert. A new fossil has been found that proves the existence of a previously undiscovered species of ancient carnivorous amphibian. The massive fish-eating salamander prowled the land and water in the late Triassic Period more than 200 million years ago. According to Science News, the fossils were discovered in a lake bed in Portugal by […]

What is the reason behind Burning Lakes?

It is recognized that global and regional climate change has important implications for terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. In everyday published studies that has revealed significant warming of lakes and reservoirs throughout the world. Remarkably, these previous studies have also found that the observed rate of lake warming is sometimes greater than that of ambient air temperature. Climate change is already beginning to affect plants and animals that live in freshwater lakes and rivers, altering their habitat and bringing life-threatening stress and disease. Temperature plays an important role is also important […]

The Plight of the Postdoc

By |2015-03-21T15:26:19+05:30March 21st, 2015|Categories: News|0 Comments

Postdocs are looking forward to change postdoctoral research and training programs. In December 2014, Shaping the Future of Research: A perspective from junior scientists, by Gary McDowell et al was published in F1000Research.This report based on the Future of Research meeting that was held in October that year. Its main message is that bioscience and biotechnology postdocs are not at all happy. A postdoctoral researcher is a person conducting research after the completion of their doctoral studies as part of a temporary appointment, usually in preparation for an academic faculty […]

The way into the Future anthology. This week’s installment, Perfection, is no exception. I remember from where the inspiration has come but it’s rare to know the exact timeline of its genesis. I think it is one of those stories that almost writes itself without struggles. Sometimes it get hard to know when the process is over or how much time will be consumed. BUT NOT FOR PERFECTION. The term “perfection” is actually used to designate a range of diverse, if often kindred, concepts. These concepts have historically been addressed […]

What should be the Exact Amount Of Time You Should Work Every Day? There are so many experiments that seem a complete waste of time and energy. It create nothing but a frustration to a PhD student? sometimes You don’t see what you expect to see, and despite the efforts we don’t have clue to why you see and  what you see. In maximum cases the results end up in a bottom drawer.In our March issue of In the classroom, Renren Deng tells us how this happened to him when […]
