Work hard, play hard
I think it was the wise Wiz Khalifa who said "work hard, play hard," a phrase that comes to mind when I think about my summer in Leuven so far. My weekdays are filled with many hours at imec, constantly going back and forth between my cozy office desk and t...

The Comfort Zone
While planning this blog, I had a really great idea to do a “Top Five Things I Learned From Leuven” post, with cute little anecdotes illustrating how I’ve changed and what challenges I’ve faced working in this environment. But as I started brainstorming ide...

"I can turn a three into a heart!"
It’s difficult to believe that we’ve been here for almost a month already! Now that we’ve really settled into a routine at work, the days simply fly by - suddenly it’s almost 5:30 and you wonder where the day went, lost in culture rooms and in front of micr...

PCR, programming and Dublin
Since my last blog post, my research project has moved from
doing some preliminary testing using a commercially available PCR cycler to a droplet-in-oil
PCR setup. The setup is challenging because it involves lots of tiny
microfluidic elements, but the proc...

This is Not a Microscope
This is not a microscope. This is only an image of a microscope, an image of a lens-free microscope to be exact. This is the first you’ve heard of a lens-free microscope? Well, the technology has been around since the 1950s, although they used mercury lamps...

Time flies when you are having lab fun
It's crazy how fast time flies. Three weeks have passed and whenever I look at my calender, I’m shocked to see that I’m almost halfway done with my stay here in Europe! On a work-related note, I've now officially trained for all the biolabs and equipment I ...

Settling in
It's been around 10 days since I had arrived in Belgium and I'm really getting the hang of things now. I was lucky in that I arrived here with Gwen (Hoffmann) so we were able to figure out the logistics and administrative details within the first few days t...

Creating new knowledge and new technologies at the interface of nanoscience and medicine
Introduction
The Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology brings together expertise from Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Medicine, Whiting School of Engineering, Applied Physics Lab, and Krieger School of Arts and Sciences to create new knowledge and new technologies at the interface of nanoscience and medicine.Research

Launched in 2006, INBT focuses its efforts in research on the basic biological sciences, the clinical sciences, and public health. In the basic biological sciences, INBT supports research exploiting nanoscience to advance our understanding of cellular and molecular dynamics at the molecular level. In the clinical sciences, INBT supports research to develop novel methods for diagnostics and therapeutics. In public health, INBT supports research to understand the potential impact of nanoscience and nanotechnology on health and the environment, as well as on using nanoscience to solve environmental problems.
