About Top Tip Bio

Top Tip Bio is a resource website to teach bioscience students and academics the skills and knowledge to thrive in research.

I created TopTipBio.com back in February 2017 whilst at the start of my first postdoctoral research associate role. As a researcher primarily focussed within the molecular biology discipline, I often come across difficult concepts. As you do, I often ask colleagues for advice and help when I get stuck. Failing this, the next point of call is the trusty internet. As a bioscientist, there is a range of aspects that my job requires, including: performing statistical analysis, undertaking laboratory experiments and writing manuscripts. I found it frustrating that the information I was seeking was either non-existent or difficult to find.

My vision for Top Tip Bio is to create a resource which contains helpful advice, guides and information on all aspects of bioscience research in one place. By explaining concepts I found difficult, I hope to help others in the same boat.

I hope you find this website useful and be sure to stick around, as I have a lot of plans for the future!

Steven is the founder of Top Tip Bio and is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate.
