Who among us hasn’t posed for a moment to admire the beauty of nature and its visualization in various forms, even though we are meant to see scientific images only as data? How many emotions are hidden behind every piece of scientific work? Gratitude towards our fellows, suffering for experimentation with mice, endless frustration from unsuccessful experiments, fascination of a new finding, excitement by the reproducibility of an experiment, lack of appreciation, or the fulfilment of working for a good cause?

We invite you to share the beauty you find both in your work and your workplace outside the confines of academia.


Yours truly,

the APNS: Association for Postdocs in Natural Sciences at UNIL
