  • A Big Lick of Science
    ” What is DNA and how does it shape our traits? How do our brains store memories? How does electrical activity travel from one heart cell to another, and how can this go wrong in diseases like heart failure? Tune in to hear the answers to these questions and more, as we interview experts in the health sciences. Join us as we explore groundbreaking biomedical research and how it is relevant to your life and health.”
  • BOLDED Science
