scientist 65: the cytologist – Melina Schuh oocytes and reproduction (2014)
The topic is meiosis in mammalian oocytes, or how we make the eggs that make our babies. Molecular biology research happens at the Medical Research Council lab of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. The LMB houses 50 research groups and over 400 scientists and one of them is led by scientist Dr Melina Schuh. Roger was intrigued to know why we need to know more about making babies, so he asked Melina.
