About Me

I am a scientist, writer and freethinker with a research background in molecular biology. I earned my MSc – with distinction – from the University of Cape Town and my PhD from the University of Vienna where my thesis was rated as excellent. I have several first author research publications in international journals as well as writing published on various websites, including the UCT Division of Human Genetics’ news page, the European Commission’s OpenUP Hub and my own personal blog. I have taken a particular interest in the movement towards open science and am involved in activities with the aim of improving the way that science is undertaken.

  1. I’m very impressed with the writing style and content on your blog. I’ve only had the chance to read through a few of your posts, but I’m looking forward to reading more! I particularly enjoyed your June 5th post on the anti-Xenophobia ad. I’m looking forward to reading more from you.

  2. It means a lot to mean that people enjoy my posts. If no one is reading them then they don’t really have any value, so thank you.

  3. Hi
    I have never subscribed to, attempted my own nor given much thought to blogs until I read yours. Primarily because I don’t have the time, or utilise my “free” time elsewhere & perceived them as self-indulgent.
    However:Bravo to a well-written, eloquent, factual & just plain kick-ass piece, putting every(self-indulgent)one of them in their place. And proving that there are always 3 sides to every story.
    I might just take to this blog-reading after all.
    Keep up the good work.

  4. Hello Jason Bosch. I wish you a clear track for your search of values. Not every stone you turn over will hold a reward you would hope for but with patience you may find a score of other finer particles which could be invaluable in your search of the mental equity you desire. Just as a matter of interest, did you know that Einstein had an IQ of 161 while Jake Barnett has an IQ of 170. People who score high in this section are mostly lumbered with Autism which is true for both above. And the strange thing about Nations and continents are that people in India and China have a county domestic score in IQ, which is the highest in the world. This part of the globe holds more people that the rest of the world combined……..re your ref to Mensa. I can only contribute my single anthem, never stop your studies, even if you do find resonance with economy, in your Masters. Never pursue the phenomenon of “LUCK”. Just create your own.

  5. Olá Jason Bosch. Eu estou interessada em saber mais sobre questões ligadas a religião, principalmente sobre o exorcismo. Obrigada, Mônica Fabiana

  6. Through boredom I came across your blog. I was a UCT med student 35 odd years ago but had to leave because of bipolar. 55 now and been living in Sydney for 25 yrs. Recovered in my 40’s after decades. Went to uni in 40’s BSc Hons in biological chemistry and now finishing a PhD. Had my whole genome and both parents genomes sequenced already. Good luck with your studies
