When we look up at the night sky, we are in awe. There are mysteries out there. There are also deep mysteries within YOU – the biological you. This podcast examines the stardust within us, and how disease changes us. There is so much about ourselves that we ignore until it fails us. Michael Strohman, a Stanford University biochemist, presents essays and interviews tracing the scientific origin of medical innovation. He dissects the scientific roots of current treatments, the limitations of those treatments, and examines how further research gets us ever closer to cures, while presenting his perspective as a science insider.
