Welcome to Passio Inventa


From the Latin “passio,” meaning passion, and “inventa,” meaning discovery. As young scientists, we exist as the bridge between these two concepts.

We are a group of graduate students from all walks of life who are passionate about the way the world works. Embark with us on a journey of discovery of some of our greatest passions, and learn what being a graduate student and a scientist looks like. Whoever you are, whatever background you are from, it is our hope you will find something that interests you in these diverse pages, and that you’ll learn a thing or two along the way.


Grad Life

If you take anything away from this site, we want it to be this: the life of a scientist does not lack emotion, excitement or substance. Not by a long shot. Scientists are people too: people who really want to know how the world works. And here at PassioInventa, people who want you to understand as well.

Give our Grad Life section a visit to see what goes on behind lab walls, what makes us passionate, and how science has changed our lives.

Q & A

Do you have questions about the world around you? Good. Asking questions is pretty much what we do for a living.

There’s a lot we don’t know, and a lot about the world we don’t yet understand. But every scientist you meet helps shrink that “great unknown” just a little bit. Come ask us a question at our Q & A section and we will make sure you get it answered by an expert.


The life of a scientist, believe it or not, is an exciting one! We are always up to something - traveling to some conference, doing fieldwork in some exotic location, feeding some glowing chemical to a dangerous bacteria… in our world, there is never a dull moment.

Come check out our News section to see what our team is up to - and where they are in the world.
