Welcome to Science Pit, my personal blog – my name is Emina, and I’m currently finishing the final year of my Master’s Degree in molecular biology. My thesis focuses on neuroscience; I’m researching the spread of tau proteins in rat brains and I would like to pursue 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 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, watching movies…

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!

Iako su moji primarni interesi neuroznanost i molekularna biologija, smatram da je zaštita okoliša i bioraznolikosti iznimno važna, jednako […]

Biology in popular culture – movies&TV (part 2)

Hello everyone and welcome to another post in the series about biological topics in movies and TV series. You can find a link to the previous post right here. My intention with these is to clarify different claims made in various movies and TV shows I watched, and also to share perhaps some surprising facts […]
