February Make/Share – Line Up

Profile your work at Make/Share!

Make/Share is a free monthly night, bringing people together to gain a behind the scenes insight into creative processes, held on the second Wednesday of each month, at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7-8.30pm.

Join us on Wed 8th Feb from 7pm and hear short talks by local creative talents about the processes behind turning their idea, project or product into reality and how they engage with the city’s communities.

Speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, progressed, changed and transformed, how they experiment, what their biggest challenges have been and how they overcame them. After the talks we have a short opportunity for any questions and discussion, and for you to share your upcoming events with the group. We also invite you to stay after the talks to network with others.

We’re delighted to let you know that The Beer Kitchen is our official sponsor venue for Make/Share and supporting the event with a complementary beer or soft drink at arrival.

You don’t need to sign up, just come along!

Debora Pasquali

Debora is currently in her 3rd year of PhD here in Dundee at the School of Life Sciences. She works in a Genetics lab where they use the baker’s yeast S. cerevisiae as a model organism to study how cells ensure the maintenance of the right amount of DNA after every cell division. The correct distribution of genetic material in the cell is of vital importance, as the unequal distribution of chromosomes can lead to a number of genetic conditions and diseases, such as Down syndrome and cancer. In particular, they have developed tools to look at what happens at a molecular level using fluorescent ‘tags’ that they can ‘stitch’ to any desired protein we want to look at under the microscope.
