Looking forward to a weekend of science and fun this weekend @BeakerSteetSci @TasMuseum. See the @Wildimmunity #Fluorobox and #FAST proteins Friday 6-10pm!
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.
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).
Lighting up fluorescent proteins in person is more fun, but images from the prototype #fluorobox I designed for #ScienceWorthSeeing event give you the idea.

#ScienceWorthSeeing event was a huge success. Click here to listen to Andy’s ABC radio interview leading up to the event.
