“Immature dendritic cells may also phagocytize small quantities of membrane from live own cells, in a process called nibbling”
who said studying immunology wasn’t fun?
Brains are wonderful, I wish everyone had one.
Whenever I ask a health-related question in a social situation outside of uni the standard response seems to be “but you’re a med student, you’re supposed to know this stuff??”
Newsflash people, I’m a med student who has done one term of what was nearly pure biochemistry. If it’s got anything to do with your metabolism no problem, but I barely know anything about the rest of the body, k?
Haha thanks but maybe we should get to know each other first, starting out with the baby-making is rushing things a bit, dontcha think?
Started Term 2 of my med school studies yesterday!
I’m super excited and motivated right now; looking at all the lectures beforehand, reviewing my notes every evening, writing a detailed plan etc.
Let’s see how long this will last haha
We’re doing blood (coagulation cascade, fibrinolysis, development and identification of different blood cells), circulation, respiration and immunology first thing :)
Our lecturer right now is a really sweet old retired man (who likes to drop fun facts and comments throughout his lectures. On the topic of drawing bone marrow from the sternum: “accidentally piercing the heart isn’t as bad as it sounds”) but he can’t articulate to save his life. My poor brain is still adjusting to being utilised again, I don’t want to have to decipher every sentence.
Spent two hours picking about 20kg of porcini this afternoon
only to have to spend the next three cleaning and cubing them but I won’t complain because they are de-licious
