Hey everyone 👋🏿 I’m Shawn Hercules, a PhD Biology student at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. I’m originally from the island of Barbados 🇧🇧 where I pursued a B.Sc. double major in Biochemistry and Chemistry at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus and a Master of Public Health (MPH) thereafter. . Currently, I am investigating the epidemiological and genetic trends in women of African ancestry (WAA) with aggressive breast cancers. Even though WAA have a lower breast cancer (BCa) incidence than Caucasian women, WAA paradoxically have higher mortality rates. This higher mortality rate in black women may be due to the fact that black women are more likely to be diagnosed with a very aggressive form of BCa called triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). The lack of targeted therapies for this BCa subtype coupled with the ability of these tumours to spread to vital organs have greatly influenced the mortality rate in women with TNBC. .
My research is focused on these main questions: why is this aggressive form of BCa so prevalent in black women and how can we effectively treat these tumours? .
Some data from my lab suggest that a protein called Kaiso is linked to the aggressiveness of triple negative breast tumours. Specifically, we found that there was significantly more Kaiso expression in triple negative tumours of black women compared to white women. We also found that removing Kaiso from TNBC cells injected into mice delayed tumor onset and metastasis to vital organs. This is exciting as Kaiso can potentially be introduced as a druggable target! Watch this space to find out more about what we find out in our lab! .
Thanks to Dan for this space! I can’t wait to share science with you all and learn from the others as well!

The number of times we have driven under this bridge! To and from the John Radcliffe ‘making’ Boo with our fertility treatments, living there for weeks after he was born and only seeing it twice in 9 weeks (home and back for our nurses visits for all his trachy kit) months of appointments for that, years for renal scans, orthotic and orthopaedics and today for genetics. Boo is a totally unique anomaly. For some reason he really struggled with today’s appointment and got very upset. For us hopefully it will help again, Dr Stuart has been with us from about 3 weeks old but we haven’t seen her for nearly 4 years due to clerical problems so it was good to catch up and she is very proactive and hopefully ready to kick backsides to get us more help. And through this all, through rain and shine, months and years (13 years nearly) this bridge has been a marker... it makes me quite emotional every time I see it and I try and capture it... sometimes I get it and sometimes it is a blur like the appointments... but is is always there, steady and constant in its odd beauty.

Mejorar nuestra alimentación y comenzar a hacer ejercicios de manera continua, puede modificar la expresión de muchos genes, esa modificación se llama adaptación. Esa continuidad en el ejercicio es la que genera que el cuerpo interprete que la situación es nueva y saque una nueva versión de nosotros mismos. . De acuerdo a estudios, una persona normal renueva aproximadamente el 98% de su cuerpo cada dos años, es decir, hoy estamos trabajando en la siguiente versión de nosotros para dentro de dos años. . Si siempre hacemos lo mismo, todas nuestras versiones serán iguales. . Tenemos la posibilidad de definir como será nuestra siguiente versión, y eso lo conseguimos a través de nuestro estilo de vida y nuestra alimentación. . Como quieres que sea tu siguiente versión? . . . . . . . #herbalife #genesis #genes #genetics #herencia #fitness #fit #desayuno #version #renovacion #nutricion #ejercicio

In this case, the mutation that Taylor had -- a double row of eyelashes -- only enhanced her exquisite face and stunning blue-violet eyes. Upon hearing the diagnosis, her mother reportedly thought, "Well, now that doesn't sound so terrible at all," according to the biography "Elizabeth" by J. Randy Taraborrelli. And while a second row of eyelashes forming a full fringe around those captivating peepers may sound like a girl's best friend and a make-up artist's dream come true, that's not always the case. Taylor's twin-set of lashes are thought to be the result of a genetic mutation at the FOXC2 gene. (Funny that a woman most men would describe as "foxy" was possibly affected by the FOXC2 gene!) #gene #genetics #mutation #foxc2gen #taylor

SO beyond excited to receive my #Ancestry #DNA results from @23andme today!! I bought both my husband and myself kits for Christmas, the suspense has been killing me but it was well worth the wait! Extra special for me since I don't know much about my mother's family and my Father was adopted... I am 100% #European ( 33% #British & #Irish, 18% #Scandinavian, 2.3% #Russian and 9.3% #AshkenaziJewish ) just to name a few!! I love that we explored our DNA with 23andMe! Recommend everyone to find out about their #genetics tools!! Use my personal link in my bio #23andMe #FamilyHistory

Heute mal was aus dem Biounterricht: Die Struktur der DNA aus Süßigkeiten nachbauen. Da hatten meine Schüler gut zu tun. Anschließend haben wir uns dann mit naturwissenschaftlichen Modellen im allgemeinen beschäftigt und Modellkritik an den DNA-Modellen geübt. Tipp: Das ganze natürlich nicht im Fachraum durchführen, sondern im Klassenzimmer. Dann können die Modelle, sobald Fotos von ihnen gemacht wurden, auch "verinnerlicht" werden. 😉

Lynx Siamese cats, also known as Tabby Point Siamese, resulted from the accidental mating of a purebred Seal Point with a tabby. The Seal Tabby was in turn obtained from mating one of these kittens again with with a purebred Seal Point・・・・・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ #meow #catstagram #cat #ilovecats #catfacts #facts #catlover #catshop #pets #petstuff #theflufflist #fluff_facts #fluff #love #furbaby #littlepaws4abigcause #savetheplanet #meowdels #catsofinstagram #purrbaby #catcards #catgifts #tabby #genetics #catbreed #siamese #siamesecat #sealpoint #sealtabby
