Canadian Molecular Biologist Exhibits Artwork in Shanghai

Canadian science is world-class and many Canadian scientists are world-renowned. While it is not surprising to find Canadian scientists presenting their findings at locations far from home, it is unusual to hear about Canadian molecular biologists traveling to Shanghai to present an artistic rendition of their work. The scientist/artist, Dr. Campbell, claims that many of his paintings are inspired by cell biology and cardiovascular sciences.

Can you see the resemblance?

How Many Canadian Scientists are Truly THIS Connected?

Back in May we told you about a tribute to the lifetime accomplishments of the late Canadian scientist, Tony Pawson. Tony was beloved to the scientific community and was held in especially high esteem amongst his colleagues at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Mount Sinai Hospital. His colleagues high regard for Tony is symbolized by a very special project spearheaded by the team at the Lunenfeld.

The Tony Pawson Authorome project, bioinformatician Gary Bader, created a detailed and interactive map highlighting all of Tony’s collaborations over the years. The results are fascinating and illustrates just how much impact Tony Pawson had on the world of science and those around him.

Tips from Canadian Scientific Icon Lee Adamson

At a recent Lunenfeld research retreat, Director of the Mouse Physiology Core of the Centre for Modeling Human Disease, Lee Adamson, had the following words of advise for young scientists:

  • Always pay it forward
  • There’s always room at the top
  • Always do what you enjoy, and you’ll get good at what you enjoy, and maybe someday somebody will pay you to do what you enjoy
  • Whatever other distractions you may have-make sure to get your work done
  • Aim high
  • Don’t clip your own wings
  • Finish all your own work
  • Consider your communications from the receiver’s perspective
  • Choose your topic carefully: you will have just six-seven (five-year) grants in your career
  • Appreciate your organization
  • For new investigators: wait until the lab is ready before taking the position

Lee actually has a very interesting story to tell of her rise from a young graduate student at the University of Western Ontario to becoming the director of one of Canada’s most respected research institutions.
