Post-doc at Institute of Pharmacology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Krakow, Poland. Former post-doc at German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany. Main topic: pharmacology, neuroscience. Working with transgenic mice to understand the mechanisms of depression and neurodegenerative disorders. Other hobbies: traveling in an independent way, skiing, photography.
My studies and my interests in Information and communications technology, Computer science, Social Networking and Web have been become my job.
I'm always studying, learning and looking for new technologies, new ideas and possibilities.

What is it, in our brains, that drives us to learn and explore? I am deeply fascinated by this ubiquitous motivation, known as curiosity, and am therefore using the most advanced tools of neuroscience to help greater our understanding. Ultimately, I feel a molecular and cellular description of curiosity will revolutionize how we view the brain and lead to novel treatments for mental illnesses.
I am a master of pharmacy and doctor of chemical engineering. I give lectures to my students about drug delivery technology and pharmacology.
Fabian H. Jenny, 1985, started in 2009, as one of the first sutdents in the Fast Track Program at University of Zurich, his Master/PhD. In 2011, he received his MSc degree in Life Sciences with a specialization in Quantitative Biology and Systems Biology. Fabian's PhD project deals with whole-genome re-sequencing in the analysis of genetic screens and he works in the laboratory of Prof. Konrad Basler.
M.D., Ph.D in neurophysiolgy. At the moment, I'm an Assistant Professor of Physiology at the Department of Human and General Physiology of the University of Bologna, Italy. My research focuses on sleep physiology, autonomic neuroscience and thermoregulation.
I'm a nerdish biotech educated in Italy that moved to Sweden for its PhD in Medical Science.
I passionately believe that science communication should be all about making things fun. We all remember falling asleep in our science classes at school as we entered the third month of deciding where Fat Billy would have to sit on a see-saw to balance Thin Milly. But this isn't what science is! Science has the most extraordinary ability to satisfy my curiosity in a way that no other subject can replicate. You want to know why your t-shirt is blue? Science has the answer. Why things grow? Yep, that's covered too. How light bulbs work? I think you catch my drift...
