Somehow, it’s the festive season once more, Secret Santas have been decided, office parties have been planned and the one available date that works for Friendsmas has been penciled into calendars. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift for your lab bestie, your science-obsessed friend or a little treat for yourself, I hope this gift guide gives you some inspiration!

The Song of the Cell: An Exploration of Medicine and The New Human by Siddhartha Mukherjee

This book begins in the late 1600s when Robert Hooke and Antonie van Leeuwenhoek looked down their microscopes and discovered cells, a discovery that has impacted almost every aspect of medicine and biology. From here, Mukherjee takes you on a journey and retells the stories behind our understanding of cells and how this knowledge is currently being used in research.




Entangled Life by Merlin Sheldrake

Is your Secret Santa the lab fun-guy? This book delves into the mysterious world of fungi and reveals how extraordinary these organisms are. This book was the winner of the Wainwright Prize for Writing on Global Conservation and the Royal Society Prize in 2021.
