Scientist Solutions: International Life Science Community By Scientists For Scientists

Thanks to our sponsors who make this site possible
parvoman' Bench [how it works]
My Bench Space is your space on Scientist Solutions, with both a private area where you can keep track of your account settings and favorite postings, and a public area where you can upload your picture, customize your profile, or start a blog

My Summary
Keeps a log of the topics you've started, the replies you've made, protocols or events you've posted, etc. Your summary will show up in your public profile.

My Blogs
You can create as many blogs as you like. They'll be viewable by anyone who looks at your profile, and they will also be indexed and listed in The Forums section of Scientist Solutions

My Lab Drawer (private)
As you browse through Scientist Solutions, you may see a topic, event, job or protocol that you'd like to store so that you can find it again easily. By clicking the "Save to My Bench Space" button next to any item on our site, you will put that item in your lab drawer for future reference.
You can also add fellow scientists to your lab drawer by clicking the "Save this scientist to My Bench Space" link next to that member's name in their posts or Bench Space profiles.

My PubMed Alerts (private)
This really cool tool allows you to set up email notifications whenever and article in your area of interest (specified by keyword is published in PubMed

About My Research


Business Develpment Manager at Roslin Cellab

We do stem cell contract research for clients developing new products (biologics, plastic ware, matrix compounds, media etc) and processes for the stem cell and regenerative medicine sectors. We also undertake grant funded R&D with academic and commercial partners with two main focuses:


1) To produce stem cell derived hepatocyte-like cells in various formats for different stages of the drug discovery and drug development processes, and

2) Using our newly developed 3D stem cell printer, design and create 3D human hepatic tissues for use, initially in drug evaluation work but with a long-term goal of developing the technology into a clinically relevent therapy for patients with liver disease.




Using recombinant viruses as tools to transduce primary macrophages and other cells involved in inflammation reactions. Either over-expressing of knocking down a gene's expression. Virus of the moment: Lentivirus (VSV-G pseudotyped HIV vectors). Work carried out within the MRC Centre for Inflammation Research (CIR) and the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM), both Edinburgh, Scotland.


And before that:

Working with wild-type and recombinant AAV and adenoviruses to develop them for gene therapy protocols. German Cancer Research Centre, Heidelberg, Germany.
