February is no longer just about Valentine’s day, it’s a whole month dedicated to appreciation, wellness, loyalty and spreading the love… not just in a romantic way! Why shouldn’t we celebrate February in the science world?
As pioneers of products that assist in ground-breaking discoveries in science and clinical care, we have a strong network of academic and industry partners. Collaboration is a crucial part of our day to day roles and underpins the tools we develop as well as the content we produce. That’s why, we’re not letting February pass us by without celebrating our very own ‘valentines’!
More and more, we are seeing skill sets become extremely specialized and as a result, collaboration as a practice becomes more important than ever. In science, there are hundreds of benefits when it comes to sharing knowledge with other researchers’ even if they have a different mission or objective. Just because you reach a roadblock in a certain project, it doesn’t mean that it’s wasted knowledge… this could be the breakthrough that somebody else is struggling to find and a simple collaboration can make time and energy in the lab more efficient.
Meet some of the pioneering scientists that we work with around the world. These individuals devote their lives to advancing knowledge and understanding of specific research subjects including cell & molecular biology, cancer biology, clinical research, pharma & biotech, immunology and much more.
Institute / Company: University of Nebraska Medical Center | UNMC · Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology
The Case laboratory examines the interplay of redox, metabolic, and epigenetic changes in regards to the nervous and immune systems during psychological stress.
Institute / Company: QuVa Pharma Inc
Professor of vascular physiology
Institute / Company: King’s College London
Info: Redox signalling; diabetes; cardiovascular; stroke; defining physiological normoxia
Institute / Company: University of Oxford
Info: Recently published an article on ‘Conserved N-terminal cysteine dioxygenases transduce responses to hypoxia in animals and plants’
Health Faculty Dean of Research, Professor of Stem Cell Biology
Institute / Company: Keele University
Info: Research theme: Regenerative Medicine
Director of Clinical Research
Institute / Company: The Francis Crick Institute
Info: Peter's current research aims to understand the biological roles of signalling through protein hydroxylation and related oxidations. In 2019, Peter was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine.
Professor of Molecular Cancer Biology
Institute / Company: Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology
Info: Ester investigates how tumours survive in conditions which include low oxygen (hypoxia). The goal is to target the hypoxic parts of tumours to improve cancer therapy.
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Head of Department of Surgery, Research Director, Division of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery
Institute / Company: University of Cambridge
Info: Professor McCaskie is an orthopaedic surgeon with an interest in lower limb surgery e.g. hip arthroscopy and related research. His research aims to develop innovative solutions, particularly regenerative, for patient benefit in musculoskeletal disease. One focus is Osteoarthritis (OA), which affects around 8 million people in the UK alone. The research encompasses a greater understanding of the causes of musculoskeletal disease and the mechanisms of action of therapy.
Over the last 15 years, the global community United Science, has made a huge effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. At present, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. At Baker, we are extremely proud to have two fantastic women scientists that do not let gender get in the way!
Baker Science Director
Info: At Baker, Kara helps the company continue to pioneer the industry it serves and also champion science. Her job is challenging and multi-faceted, from advising internal product development, to leading external seminars with academic collaborators. She determines the yearly research plan for the company and also works closely with key Baker and Baker Ruskinn customers.
Baker Director of Scientific Applications
Info: Krista’s main responsibility is to support the distribution network especially in Europe but also in other continents, providing material for application notes, delivering webinars and representing the Baker brands at key events.
We are extremely proud to deliver the best tools for the greatest science, that are rigorously tested and designed with precision craftmanship. Explore our Innovate + Educate section of the website to see how we can help you and your research.
