My name is Dr Natacha  Agabalyan, I’m a 30 something research scientist, currently living in the beautiful city of Brighton, UK. I love finding out interesting facts about all aspects of life, whether it’s how genetic engineering works or what the difference between crimped and straight hair is. There’s a bit of science behind everything and the Science Informant will find the link!

About The Science Informant

The Science Informant was born in September 2010 and aims to bring explain and amaze with some good geeky facts about all sorts of things! I love finding out how something works, whether it’s something very complex or just an everyday occurrence. I think everyone should be able to understand the basics behind science, without all the jargon confusing you!

Research

After a PhD at Brighton and Sussex Medical School in Brighton researching the tendon tissue and how, under certain circumstances and in some animals, tendon can turn to bone, I joined the Biernaskie lab at the University of Calgary In Canada working on improving skin grafting for burns patients. Here’s a look at the lab website: Skin Regeneration Team! Following a year back in Brighton, I am about to embark on my newest research adventure, joining the Ferretti lab at University College London, UK where I will be investigating new techniques for bio-engineering cartilage.
