On this week’s show, Diego, Lisl, Kat, and Trisha discuss how to combat anti-vaxxers with logic, boring genomes with promiscuity, and Alzheimer’s with antibodies.
Trisha, Chelsea, Greg, and Diego are joined by Dr. HoJoon Lee, an expert in colon cancer. Our hosts and HoJoon explore how big data and genetics are helping us identify the drivers of this disease. Plus, how bats can jam each other’s signals and one of the steamiest game shows ever.
Lisl, Diego, Dave and guest host Dr. Mary Cavanagh speak with graduate students Jason Buenrostro and Lauren Chircus on building new technologies, RNA-protein interactions, and strawberry-rhubarb pies. Plus, we cover a newly discovered female penis and what really happens during conception (articles not related!).
Let’s start this week with a Bang! The Big Bang, that is. Join Dave, Lisl, Diego, and Trisha to celebrate the first study that proves inflation theory. Is something else inflating, like your waistline? A new study provides evidence for eating the right ratio of nutrients to maximize longevity. However if you’re like Diego, this episode will probably make you hungry. And guys, listen up! We now have scientific evidence for the right dance movies to maximize your sexiness on the dance floor. Lastly, there is now published work toward a drug that can protect against HIV in monkeys for 8 weeks. One point man, still infinite points for Nature.
