this is my little rescue dog, Folly. She likes to help me work and sees herself as a future bioinformatician 🤔🐶

Hello Just wondering if there is anyone else out there who is involved in medical imaging research? I am currently a bioinformatician using RNA-seq data to investigate cellular ageing, but I'm also a qualified diagnostic radiographer and will soon be starting a postdoc in medical imaging. I am especially interested in utilising my quite diverse experience to bring together genetics and imaging to improve medical diagnostics. Would love to connect with anyone who is interested in this area of research or who works in medical imaging in general! 😀

I qualified as a radiographer but currently a bioinformaticion working in human genetics (have also worked in microbial genomics). Soon to be starting a postdoc in medical imaging. I live in Devon with my two kids and my dog. Interested in politics and all things science!

Fabulous first week in my new job at which included a night away at an amazing research retreat; a really good opportunity to begin planning future collaborations for in

An incredible achievement by the planetary defense community! #2022WJ1 was a tiny asteroid on a collision course with Earth. But astronomers saw it coming, and NASA’s Scout impact hazard assessment system calculated where it would hit: #CNEOS #PDCO #NASA #Scout #PlanetaryDefense

Something that I hope to spend more time on now that I've wrapped up my PhD is astrophotography.

This photo of the Milky Way was captured over the dark skies of the Ozarks in August 2020. Designated as an International Dark Sky Site, the glow of light pollution is still visible on the horizon, in this case the light dome from Little Rock and surrounding areas.

This photo is a stacked and tracked 30-image composite taken over 30 minutes.

Just migrated to mastodon from Twitter and looking for researchers to follow here to get started. I found some nice lists separated by field but haven't found any for natural language processing. Does anyone know of one?

Whilst I’m hard at work, Folly is also taking her job as head of security very seriously, keeping a careful eye out the window and ensuring any passing dog walkers, delivery drivers or neighbours are properly scared away 🐶

Bit of light reading for a Sunday 🤔 Looking at various tools and methods for identifying cellular senescence in an attempt to save the lab team a lot of time carrying out manual cell counts 😬

I'll be teaching an one-line :rstats: Bioconductor for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics course on the 27 - 29 March 2023:

If you want to learn on your own, all the software and the material is openly available at:

Hello folks! 👋 I am Hans, a Machine Learning Scientist 👨‍🔬 at a (sadly still stealth) startup, working remote from The Netherlands (we're actively #hiring!). I'm also a PhD candidate in computation pathology, predicting prognosis for people with prostate cancer. See this repo for my work on enabling CNNs to be trained with gigapixel images:

My #introduction… I’m a mom, a nurse, a scientist. I like all things science & research and I want a safe place to learn & engage.

I like learning about what makes tiny lungs strong & healthy. I call this Pulmonary Resilience and I want to help babies born too soon. 'neotwitter' is a great place but that platform is imploding & too noisy so I'm hoping to find folks here!

Humanity have successfully launched #ArtemisI, marking the dawn of a new space age. It’s the first step in our grand ambitions for human spaceflight: Future #Artemis missions will put humans back on the #Moon to establish a moon base and eventually journey to #Mars.
