A little #Wildimmunity on a #Friday night BeakerStreet@TMAG @BeakerSteetSci @TasMuseum #Fluorobox

BeakerStreet@TMAG, a pop-up science bar in Hobart 10-11 August 2018

Looking forward to a weekend of science and fun this weekend @BeakerSteetSci @TasMuseum. See the @Wildimmunity #Fluorobox and #FAST proteins Friday 6-10pm!

Why not get a little wild immunology on a Friday night @Peppermint Bay with Dr Andrew Flies @WildImmunity @ResearchMenzies @UTAS_

Thank you for the support!

Thank you to everyone who continues to support our research through the Save the Tasmanian devil appeal. The #TassieDevil immunology and vaccine research has been sustained by this program and led to a successful 3-year ARC DECRA fellowship for Dr Andrew Flies @WildImmunity.

Want to see what a normal distribution looks like?

This “statistics in slow motion” video is the best visual example that I have seen for understanding how statistics and probability work! It is highly unlikely that all of the beads will end up at the edges in any experiment – most will end up in the middle (i.e. normal distribution).

Devils + jellyfish + molecular biology = immunology tools

Lighting up fluorescent proteins in person is more fun, but images from the prototype #fluorobox I designed for #ScienceWorthSeeing event give you the idea.
