Squishier

Remember Squishy Cow, she of Open Lab 2010 fame? Squishy Cow has been slowly getting used to living in England. She has even made a new friend! At the annual British Society for Developmental Biology meeting in April, someone was telling me about the freebies she got at the stands,...

Squishy’s slow ascent to fame

ScienceOnline09 – Day 1

Members of downtown research labs emerge from their respective institutions, and, blinking in the daylight, make their way to a local hotel-turned-student-residence to attend the ritual. Everyone loves going to Labfest – not for...
