Hamburg, October 12, 2017 – The new “Off the Bench” is here. Eppendorf AG publishes the life science and style magazine twice per year. The current title story introduces British cell biologist Madeline Lancaster, who developed a method for growing four-millimeter mini brains from cell cultures. The researcher and her team are passionately pursuing the question of what sets us as humans apart from other living beings.

In addition to three-dimensional brain research, Off the Bench explores how so-called super plants extract poisonous substances from the soil and use them to their benefit. A research approach to freeing contaminated soil of heavy metals? It is also plants which came to life this spring in the Californian desert after years of drought, transforming the otherwise bleak landscape into a sea of colors.

Other exciting topics included in this issue are a city profile of Washington, where the leading trade show for neuroscientists from all over the globe, “Neuroscience”, will be held in November, as well as a report on research careers and the global stations of scientist Wim Delva. A guest contribution presented by Off the Bench with the kind authorization of the scientific publication “Science”.

Off the Bench can be ordered free of charge via magazine@eppendorf.com, or you may subscribe online at corporate.eppendorf.com/en/news-medien.

The second issue of Off the Bench, the LifeScienceStyle Magazine by Eppendorf, is here. Our new title story features the Spanish biochemist Oscar Fernandez-Capetillo, who researches the connection between DNA damage, replicative cellular stress and the development of cancer at the National Cancer Research Center (CNIO) in Madrid. Further topics in this issue include a critical look at the genome editing process CRISPR as well as the global extinction of red algae species, the source of the gelling agent agar-agar. This issue’s travel destination is the Swiss metropolis of Geneva, host to this year’s trade fair ESHRE of the Europe­an Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, held in early July. Lastly, with the kind permission of the journal Science, author Jeffrey J. McDonnell explains what authors of scientific publications may learn from Hollywood directors.

“After the many positive responses to our inaugural issue, we are very pleased to once again offer our readers valuable insights for their daily work routine with this new issue”, states Thomas Bachmann, President & CEO of the Eppendorf AG.
