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: https://github.com/DIAGNijmegen/pathology-streaming-pipeline
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.
SAVE THE DATE: We are happy to announce that the Workshop on Genomics 2023 will take place on the 14-27th of May. Save it in your calendars, and share it with those interested!
For the first time, we will introduce an Equal Opportunities bursary system for low- and lower-middle income countries within and outside the EU.
I'm Robin and still figuring this thing out 👋
Currently finishing my PhD in #ComputationalNeuroscience @ FZ-Juelich, Germany
Trying to understand #brain mechanisms like #cortical #wave dynamics, e.g. via statistical network comparisons
Science needs collaboration and collaboration needs #open-source tools
Spending too much time fine-tuning data visualizations
Passionate about approaching scientific questions via #brainart
Sometimes entertaining a blog at rgutzen.github.io
Reminder that my deep learning course at the University of Geneva is entirely available on-line. 1000+ slides, ~20h of screen-casts.
Full of examples in PyTorch
"The History of the Domestic Cat in Central Europe"
A really cool interdisciplinary project combining palaeogenetics, zooarchaeology and radiocarbon dating.
Child death, unsafe social housing
Tragic and shameful. Too many people living in cold damp acommodation are being told to put up with it, told people used to have it worse, told it's not a big deal. No one should be living like this. What a terrible, heartbreaking waste of life.

Good discussion with a colleague on how we write about #biology to lay audiences, and how we may need to do more to generalise knowledge of molecular biology. E.g. a better general understanding of RNA, what it is, and how it works might’ve done wonders against vaccine hesitancy. We have some fantastic physics communicators in the mainstream, in TV and in popular science publications, maybe we should try to get more cell and molecular biologists there too? #SciComm #MolBio #CellBio
#introduction hello all - I’m Aisling - first year student diagnostic radiographer at the University of Exeter. A Social Prescribing student champion for 22/23 and SoR student forum member. I’m a mum of 4, wife and #neurodivergent. I love the outdoors, medieval history and have a dachshund puppy called Sky that keeps me sane.
Hello everyone! This is the new official account of the Debirdify app. It helps you finds out which of the people you follow on Twitter are on Mastodon/in the Fediverse already and follow all of them easily.
Try it: https://pruvisto.org/debirdify
We recommend to keep checking it every few days to see if there are new people.
I never actually posted an #introduction toot, so here it is:
Doing #bioinformatics at Masaryk University #Brno, tooting about #science and life in general. PhD in #PlantBiology from UIUC. Interested in #G-quadruplexes, repetitive sequences (aka #transposons or #repeats) and #genome evolution.
It appears I am going to be made a Senior Member of the IEEE (the highest level one can achieve)... Cool!
Last week I helped edit this Insight https://elifesciences.org/articles/84025 about a paper describing the use of gene interaction-perturbation networks to obtain a more useful taxonomy for colorectal cancer (CRC). This is important because better taxonomies can lead to more personalised and targeted treatments. According to this new taxonomy, CRC can be divided into 6 subtypes. You can read the related article here: https://elifesciences.org/articles/81114
