Studying BSc Biomedical Science at Imperial College London.

I have several years worth of experience in

web development (HTML, PHP, CSS, JS, SQL; both raw and using frameworks jQuery and Smarty)

and programming (Windows/C++, Android/Java, Flash/AS3)

as well as some hobbyist experience in design (Inkscape, GIMP, Autodesk 3D).

Active member of the London Hackspace Biohackers whenever time permits; I also love tweaking and meddling but rarely find the time these days (in other words, hacking). Also, laptops don't permit for meddling a lot unfortunately.

comment In which order did the cells of the immune system evolve?
Information being interesting or useful for medical students doesn't necessarily make it applicable to medicine ;)

comment Organs lifespan out of the body
It sounds like what you are really asking is "What organ can be conserved outside of the body for the longest time and still function when reimplanted?" - Is that correct? If so, please edit your question to reflect that and provide more detail!

comment What is immunosuppression? Why would one use it?
Referring to immunosuppression in cancer, I would expect him to be thinking of leukaemias or lymphomas. Immunosuppression is actually quite common there firstly because the cancerous cells are most often (in lymphomas always) themselves immune cells and directly affected by immunosuppressive treatment - on the other hand it is a typical part of bone marrow transplantation procedures, which are sometimes the best or only treatment for these conditions.

comment What does 5' and 3' mean in DNA and RNA strands?
The five carbons in the ribose backbone are numbered starting from the O in clockwise direction* - therefore the carbon which has the base (A, T, C, G) attached is called 1'. The 2' carbon does nothing special, the 3' carbon has an OH group (downwards dash in the diagram), the 4' carbon connects the ribose ring to 1' via the O bond, and the 5' carbon is outside of the ring, attached to the 4' carbon on one side and phosphate on the other. PS: *) strictly, it's not after the ring direction but rather it comes from the linear configuration, i.e. when ribose is not in ring form.

comment How do duplicate brain regions (ex: left/right amygdaloid body) operate together?
The two symmetrical counterparts of a brain compartment can interact with each other through connections in the corpus callosum. The purpose behind two regions of the same kind differs. For example, often it is to handle inputs from the two sides of the body respectively. Check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateralization_of_brain_function to get started.
