For the first time, researchers have used RNA sequencing to demonstrate key differences in chronic pain manifestation between men and women, driving a major rethink about the molecular mechanisms at play (1, 2, 3)

As an assistant editor for The Translational Scientist, I can combine two of my passions; translational science research and science communication. Having thrown myself into various editing and other science communication gigs whilst at University I came to realise the importance of good quality content that delivers in an exciting and engaging way.
