Science Life is evolving, as science writer and multimedia producer extraordinaire Kevin Jiang launches a new monthly podcast to highlight research at the University of Chicago Medicine and Biological Sciences.
In this inaugural episode, we’re resurrecting 500 million year old proteins with Joe Thornton, professor of human genetics and evolution and ecology; Characterizing the first “bifunctional” gene found in humans, with Chris Gomez, professor and chair of the Department of Neurology; and solving the mystery of the inactive potassium channel with Benoit Roux, professor of biochemistry and microbiology.
