Lecture 'Oxylipins: A Cry for Help'

Recently, I commented our project on oxylipin signalling evolution in a form of a long post and in a form of a poster. Now, I have delivered also a lecture in a 'popular science' format that summarizes the state-of-the-art in studying microbial oxylipins (and beyond).

Recently, I published here a long post on oxylipin signalling across kingdoms of life, a problem of its evolution, and its medical significance. But I know, that some people like talks or lectures better. I am glad to say that I have recently delivered such lecture. 

I say thousand thanks to the Royal Society of Biology London branch: they organized this online event in a best way. There were a lot of audience members and very interesting questions & discussion after the lecture. Now, the recording of the lecture is available at the Royal Society of Biology YouTube channel. You can find this video below and download lecture slides (with clickable links) here.

For me, it was rather an experimental lecture: I included some non-standard points into the presentation, such as my own photo arts. Such a comprehensive overview required a lot of comparisons — it was the way how Amortentia from 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' came to the talk and biochemical signals were 'translated' to the human language. I also say thanks to Anastasiia Samoukina, a biological artist who kindly provided her illustrations for my lecture. So, this talk was an interesting case of a creative work in outreach and engagement. And, if I have engaged you — mischief managed
