Gail M. Seigel, Ph.D. (b.1961), was born and raised in Rochester, NY. She received her B.S. from Rutgers University and Ph.D. from Albany Medical College, with postdoctoral training in neuroscience at the University of Rochester. She is currently a Research Professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Dr. Seigel has 30 years of experience in biomedical research, which includes both academia and industry. Her first e-book, “Academania: My Life in the Trenches of Biomedical Research” (2015), is a memoir about her life in science, starting from her earliest school days to her present-day adventures in academic research.

It is never too late to take proactive measures to protect your research budget in the event of a funding lapse.
Do you use biotinylated secondary antibodies in your immunohistochemistry? You could use polymers instead. They are a great time-saving reagent.
How long has it been since you checked your lab freezer? Remember that plasmid you designed? How about that cell line you developed that now sits idly in the vapors of a liquid Nitrogen tank? And the novel peptide or enzyme from a few years ago that remains buried in permafrost? It’s time to revisit…
For the busy scientist, a Smartphone is more than just a Facebook and Instagram viewer. In the past few years, apps have been developed that can also allow you to use your phone or tablet to design PCR and qPCR experiments on the go.
Genomic Science has come a long way since the early days of Sanger sequencing in the 1970’s. Today, there are jazzy new sequencing technologies that include fragment analysis, epigenetic sequencing, RNA/transcriptome sequencing and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). Increasingly these technologies are becoming more accessible, but they still require highly specialized (read: expensive) equipment. Unless your…
