As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, our thoughts are with you during these turbulent times. We know that many scientists are still diligently pursuing their research, particularly those focused on COVID-19, and at Abcam we remain focused on our mission to serve life scientists. If you want to read more about how Abcam is working to support COVID-19 research, visit our website.

Additionally, if you were looking forward to attending an Abcam event or conference, rest assured that our team is working hard to rearrange or digitalize many of these events. If you have any questions, click here to find out more information or contact our events team.

However, we understand that many researchers are having to continue their work as best they can from home. To help you adapt to the current situation, we aim to share with you our tips on working from home, and how to keep little ones (and yourselves) entertained. We also know that keeping motivated can sometimes be challenging, so if you need some inspiration, watch out for our post on little-known female scientists.

At Tipbox, we recognize that these are new, and occasionally stressful, times, so we invite you to take a moment to sit back and relax. Many of us enjoy relaxing with some paper and coloring pencils, so if this sounds like you, check out the first page of our coloring book.

Fancy writing for Tipbox? Got an awesome story to tell? Then we want to hear! Drop us an email at with story pitches, ideas, hilarious bants, or maybe you just want a bit of a chat. Whatever it is, we want it. And then we'll share it. You may or may not become instantly famous.
