STEMculture Podcast is a podcast focused on improving the culture of STEM by talking about topics that affect graduate students, postdocs, early career researchers and more.
Graduate students need more development of skills and techniques to be successful in their masters or PhD. Here, I share the techniques and skills that have worked for me.
Are trends in hormones from the right and left earplugs of the same individual baleen whale the same?
Progesterone, the pregnancy hormone, plays a huge role in population dynamics when extracted from earplugs.
