Where to post my topic

One question we frequently receive is “Where do I put my post?” Remember, the goal of Scientist Solutions is to share your question or idea with as many scientists working in your field or area of expertise as possible. That being said, we have divided the website into forums representing large topic areas (like immunology or cell culture). Each forum is divided into specific sub-forums, that allow scientists to focus on particular subject areas or assay questions. 

For example, if I had a question about protein loading on a gel, I would post my question in the forum “Protein Detection” under the sub-forumProtein Gel Electrophoresis and Staining. If I wanted to post a new idea about the role IL-2 in lymphocyte activation, I would post my idea in the forum “Immunology” under the sub-forum “Cytokines/Inflammation.” 

If you want to post a meeting, class, webcast, seminar, etc please useSciEvents

Here is a list of all the forums (with descriptions, and their sub-forums):
