Welcome to Science Pit, my personal blog – my name is Emina, and I’m a Molecular Biologist. My thesis focused on neuroscience; I investigated the spread of tau proteins in rat brains and I would like to pursue a further career in this topic. Another aspect of science that I’m really interested in is science communications; my goal is to help make science/biology easily understandable to everyone and to also motivate the youngest to study and actively pursue careers in STEM.

Every other Monday on my Instagram page, under #MigraineMonday hashtag, I write about my personal experience with chronic migraine, as well as shining the light on the condition and medications.

My favourite hobbies are speleology and writing; I’m only a novice caver, but I really enjoy doing it – there is something truly special in spending time in nature, breathing that distinct cave air. As for writing, it was important to me since I was a child; I like to explore different writing styles and storylines. I also like photography, reading, and playing lacrosse.

On this blog, I mostly write about various topics in Biology and Neuroscience, some studying advice, traveling for meetings, but also some subject matters unrelated to STEM that I feel passionate about. I hope you will find something interesting and educational here!

The most beautiful cave I ever visited

In the first week of July this year, I applied for a “Little school of speleology” which included a week of evening classes and an excursion on a Saturday. I did finish my speleology school in 2018, but I wanted to brush up on my knowledge, meet new people, and, naturally, visit a cave. Since […]

For the adventures from the previous year, click here and here. Quick reminder: BIUS is an association that gathers many Biology students […]
