Thanks,

I am 'studying' towards an admission to PhD in Cell Signaling. I am in NCBS:
www.ncbs.res.in
This institute is now well known - we have publications in Cell and other journals with peer review comittee. Regarding my work, it is like this:
I am trying to understand the 'angiogenesis' (new blood vessel formation) in tumors of cervical cancers. My focus is through a well conserved signaling path in cell - Notch signaling (about which I will only say, for now, that if you delete this gene in mouse - the mouse dies in embryo!

All this does not involve chemistry - but as I said, I have interest in everything (except P and R). My future interest in chem would be to think of small inhibitors for inhibiting the highly overexpressed signaling molecules in cell that cause cancers.

Regards,
Mike

What bioforum? I don't think biologists have to deal directly with chemistry.

Yeah, but pure biologists only.

I suppose I should introduce myself...

I'm at Somerville college, Oxford, currently sitting my final exams.

I will start a research year in September, working with Prof. George Fleet, in organic chemistry.

I'm not sure yet, the group has several research interests, I will discuss it with George after my exams and see what's on the go, and then decide what I will do for a year.

Hi there, I am Anthony, 33 from Singapore and my nick is antman.

I think this forum is simply out-of-this-world. I am very impressed by the collective wisdom of Chemistry lovers in this forum. Simply mind-blowing!

Well done! Keep it up!

Hmm....anyone here thought of making this an enterprise? Hehehh...just asking.... ;D

My name is Milt Beychok and I am a retired chemical engineer living with my wife in Newport Beach, California, USA.  I am a graduate of Texas A&M University in the USA.

About half of my 50-year career was spent in process designing and commissioning of oil refineries, petrochemical plants and power plants (or power stations). The other half was spent as an independent consultant in the field of environmental technology and environmental permitting of refineries and petrochemical plants.

I have published two engineering texts: "Aqueous Wastes from Petroleum and Petrochemical Plants" in 1967 and "Fundamentals of Stack Gas Dispersion" (4th Edition) in 2005.

Hello all,
I am just now realizing that in all the time I've been here, I have never introduced myself! I am Eric, and I've been studying chemistry for a bit now. I have been seeking a degree in chemistry, but I have since decided that chemistry would be better as a hobby/interest only, and that my true interest at uni and as a career is German. (cue scary music)  My major interest is in organic mechanistic chemistry, and I have spent 2 years in research on that topic.  So, now you know. *wave*

With 100 posts under my belt now, it's about time I chime in here.

My name's Matt and I'm from Pasadena, California.  I was on the verge of getting my B.A. degree in chemistry, though I had to drop out and go to work to make ends meet.  I still read up a lot on chemistry topics, though, and often come up with novel experiment ideas.  Right now, I'm a veterinary assistant and also the webmaster for Paw'd Squad Animal Rescue (we rescue abandoned cats & dogs throughout most of Southern California and find homes for them). 

As for as chemistry interests go, I'm primarily interested in organic chemistry (for me it's about as fun as builiding things with Legos--so many things you can make with organic molecules), toxicology, lanthanides (I think there's still quite a bit of mystique to these elements), superconductors (I live for the day when someone develops one that works at room-temperature), and supramolecular chemistry (the idea of building molecules as workbenches for specific chemical reactions is pretty exciting).

Hi everyone,

I'm a teenage female student (stewed ant) studying chemistry and other things of lesser importance to this forum at university.

I'll try to help the high schoolers, but mostly i'm going to need alot of help from you graduates and lecturer types. You'll love me, you'll hate me, but if you don't help me  :'( we'll both be sorry.

Hello..

I am a summer high school student entering post secondary next year! I am a straight A student and I do enjoy chemistry. I would eventually like to get into medicine. My hobbies include watching the Simpsons and bodybuilding.

This is a great forum!
