Katherine Gill gave a talk on “The science behind bias” at a pop-up event hosted by TEDx Aarhus, located at the Kvindemuseet in August 2019. Using her neuroscience background, Katherine spoke about how the brain innately makes associations for predicting future scenarios, and that this is the basic mechanism behind unconscious bias.

DANWISE strives for gender equality, equal rights and opportunities in Denmark

The Danish Society for Women in Science (DANWISE) is a non-profit organization to address gender inequality in Denmark, representing women from academia and industry within the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) and Humanity fields. Katherine Gill, External Communications Officer of DANWISE and a postdoctoral…

Fly Copulation. Credit: Philipsborn Research group
Graphical abstract: During copulation, males transfer not only sperm, but also seminal fluid. The authors hypothesize: Specific components of the male accessory gland secondary cells - secondary cell products (SCPs) cause the female to start singing. Her singing in turn prompts the male to allocate his ejaculate differently, ultimately giving him a reproductive advantage over other males, by biasing the female to mate with the next male later.

Do your neighbours have a noisy love life? Consider yourself lucky that you are not a fruit fly! Anne von Philipsborn’s group has discovered that female fruit flies sing by pulsed wing vibrations while they are copulating.

The new study, published yesterday in Nature Communications, was led by experts in behavioural genetics and circuit neuroscience in Drosophila at DANDRITE. The researchers’ findings on Drosophila sexual behaviour are important for understanding the complexity of neurocircuitry and behavioural genetics. In this article, first author of the paper…

A recent publication by NCMM studied how the ER stressor drug thapsigargin and analogues for cancer-related therapies induce cell death in human cancer cells.

A recent publication by Lindner et al. entitled; “Cell death induced by the ER stressor thapsigargin involves death receptor 5, a non-autophagic function of MAP1LC3B, and distinct contributions from unfolded protein response components” studied how the ER stressor drug thapsigargin and analogues for cancer-related therapies induce cell death in…
