Self Education – Special Episode



YJBM editors Kartiga and Huaqi interview Dr. Robert Hahn, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about self-motivated education. For more information about YJBM or to read our latest issues, visit medicine.yale.edu/yjbm


Clocks and Cycles Episode 2



In the second episode for YJBM’s Clocks and Cycles Issue, Huaqi and Wei interview Xiaoyong Yang, an expert on the interactions between the circadian clock and metabolism. For more information about YJBM or to read the Clocks and Cycles issue, visit medicine.yale.edu/yjbm


Special episode: YJBM turns 90



To celebrate the Yale Journal of Biology & Medicine’s 90th anniversary, the outgoing editor-in-chief and managing editor discuss the value of YJBM and reflect on its history with YJBM’s faculty advisor, Professor Jeffrey Bender, and Yale School of Medicine’s Deputy Dean for Education, Dean Richard Belitsky.

Clocks and Cycles Episode 1



Do you feel like you get sick more often when you aren’t getting enough sleep or when you travel overseas? There might be a reason for that! For the first episode based on YJBM’s Clocks and Cycles issue, join the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine hosts, Amelia and Lisa, as they interview Dr. Silver about his work on how the circadian clock impacts your immune system.

Attention Science: Episode 2



The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine Podcast hosts will interview Dr. Thomas Brown, a former Yale professor and current member of the clinical faculty of the Keck Medical School at the University of Southern California. Listen as we discuss Dr. Brown’s research and his work running an ADHD clinic.


Attention Science: Episode 1



Pay attention! Join Amelia Hallworth and Kelsie Cassell as they discuss attention science throughout life. We start with the neuroscience behind attention as a baby, discuss how children and adult’s attention is altered by technology, and finally look at the loss of attention in Alzheimer’s patients at the end of life. This episode is released in conjunction with and will feature research from the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine’s March 2019 issue on Attention Science.


Ecology & Evolution: Episode III



In the third installment of Yale Journal of Biology & Medicine’s series on ecology and evolution, YJBM podcast hosts Neal Ravindra and Kartiga Selvaganesan interview Richard Prum. Professor Prum is the William Robertson Coe Professor of Ornithology, a faculty member in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and affiliated with Yale’s Peabody Museum of Natural History. He is also the author of the recent book, The Evolution of Beauty, which was a finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer prize. We discuss some of the concepts in that book and topics in his current research program during the episode.


Ecology and Evolution: Episode II



Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine podcast hosts, Amelia Hallworth and Kelsie Cassell provide a broad overview of the topics of ecology and evolution and highlight some of the research published in YJBM’s December 2018 issue focusing on Ecology and Evolution.


Ecology and Evolution: Episode I



As part of the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine’s quarterly issue, focusing on Ecology & Evolution, YJBM podcasters John Ventura & Huaqi Li interview Stephen Stearns, the Edward P. Bass Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale about his work.
