      Anything involving cutting up biological tissue during a heat wave because everything gets smelly!

      Imaging insect brain stems with a scanning electron microscope to see how well they are spread out on a new type of biosensor. I was told I was imaging the top of the sensor, I only found out afterwards that it contained insect brains.

      As someone who works with people rather than cells I don’t have to do many disgusting experiments but I did once hold a human brain!
