Hi TwiVanguardians,

It’s been a while since I have written to TWiV, but as always it was great listening to all the “in depth” discussion on various issues concerning life as a scientist, especially in response to Raihan’s email and pressures / frustrations of publishing...

Hi everyone,

I actually would have preferred if my aside about number of publications had not been read on air. As Kathy said, I simply had wanted to provide some actual data to back up my claim that it is not necessary to work insane hours to succeed at research...

Greetings again TWIV docs,

As someone who worked on identifying physiologically relevant CD8+ T cell epitopes for potential dengue vaccines, thanks for covering the latest on Dengvaxia. The background scuttlebutt in our biotech circles probably led to skepticism  about this vaccine but now the data is emerging. It’s a bummer, because an effective Dengue virus vaccine for all individuals is very much needed.

Hi there, I heard your questions about the CLEM (Correlative Light Electron Microscopy) experiment from the transcytosis paper and wanted to clear up a few things:

1) I acquired the optical and electron images a week apart using 2 different microscopes: a Leica SP8 laser scanning confocal and a Hitachi H7500 Transmission Electron Microscope...

Hi Twiverinos,

As someone who recently received a PhD in microbiology and who often receives remarks from peers and PIs praising me for the sheer amount of work I have produced in my time in grad school, I could not disagree more strongly with the notion set forth by Jon Yewdell that you have to work insane hours to be successful.

I’d like to throw my name in the hat for the Viruses Book giveaway. But more importantly I feel like adding to the ‘spin-off’ conversation you had about publishing and career advancement...

As always, appreciate the show. Especially ep. 461 since so much of my time involves reviews of similar experiments! Thank you for acknowledging the papers are not easy to decipher! When reviewing for safety:  safety of the vectors, safety of the transgenes, safety of the procedures there can be a lot of cross-checking to learn about every single piece of the experimental setup (particularly the molecular biology)!

When I was looking for Fenner’s papers Online, I could not find any.  As luck would have it, someone soon after handed me a copy of the 1957 – 1958 Harvey lectures — one by Frank Fenner.  I put a PDF here:
