Sensory Biology and Pain: Episode II



We will be following up our first episode by interviewing a neuroscientist studying the visual cortex, Dr. Jess Cardin from the Department of Neuroscience at Yale. We will discuss our current understanding of visual processing, the role of visual cortex, her research interests, and more.


Sensory Biology and Pain: Episode I



Want to learn more about your senses? In the first episode of two on Sensory Biology and Pain, the focus topic for the March 2018 issue of the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, we will discuss how our sensory systems function, how they can become dysfunctional, and how we study them.


Gene Editing: Episode II



Dr. Pasquale Patrizio joins the YJBM podcast to talk about gene editing and the bioethics that surrounds this exciting topic. In particular, we explore the different roles gene editing plays in the clinic and in bench science.

Gene Editing: Episode I



The podcast team at the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine will interview two deputy editors for the December 2017 Special Issue on Gene Editing. We will discuss a couple manuscripts that are in the issue and introduce the topics of gene editing from a technical and ethical perspective.


Comparative Medicine: Episode II



Join us in our conversation with Dr. Caroline Zeiss, a veterinary pathologist and laboratory animal veterinarian and the director of the Yale Mouse Research Pathology Core. We discuss the power of animal models in academia and industry and how to improve translatability of animal research.


Infectious Disease: Episode I



Want to learn more about infectious diseases? In the first episode of two on infectious diseases, the focus topic for the June 2017 issue of the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, we will be discussing the history of epidemics, how infections affect our bodies, and how to prevent the spread of the infectious diseases.


Drug Development: Episode II



In this episode, we talk with Dr. Katerina Politi, a Pathology professor here at Yale, about the critical role of basic scientific research in the drug development process. Specifically, we delve into the way in which scientific advances in the molecular underpinnings of lung cancer have shaped emergents therapies, and vice versa.
