Welcome to Women in Science, a special series in honor of Women’s History Month. Join us each Monday in March as we hear from women making great strides in their fields, from reproductive health justice to animal evolution. We’ll learn about the challenges they’ve faced in their journeys, explore the importance of representation, and see how women on the forefront of science and medicine lift up others and build toward a better tomorrow.
In the fifth and final episode of this series, we’re featuring Dr. Marina Sirota, an assistant professor at the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute at UCSF. We talk about how one can use troves of data to make important medical discoveries– but also about the challenges of leveraging so much information. Among other things, we also discuss the rewards of introducing young girls to the beauty of data science, and what it’s like to transition between industry and academia.

Welcome to Women in Science, a special series in honor of Women’s History Month. Join us each Monday in March (and April - thanks, COVID-19!) as we hear from women making great strides in their fields, from reproductive health justice to animal evolution. We’ll learn about the challenges they’ve faced in their journeys, explore the importance of representation, and see how women on the forefront of science and medicine lift up others and build toward a better tomorrow. In the fourth episode of this series, we’re featuring Dr. Flora Rutaganira, a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Nicole King’s lab at UC Berkeley. In our conversation, we talk about the beauty (and cuteness!) of choanoflagellates, finding community and direction as an early-career researcher, and how universities can support marginalized scientists.

We’ll learn about the challenges they’ve faced in their journeys, explore the importance of representation, and see how women on the forefront of science and medicine lift up others and build toward a better tomorrow. In the third episode of this series, we’re featuring Dr. Meryl Horn, a former president of Carry the One Radio and a current producer of the podcast Science Vs. We discuss her journey as a scientist, her passion for researching the scientific issues that really matter to the public, and her search for answers when the scientific topic is under-researched and unclear.

In the second episode of this series, we're featuring Dr. Ramona Tascoe, a physician and activist whose work has left impacts in the Bay Area and internationally. In our conversation, we talked about the strengths of Dr. Tascoe’s unconventional academic background, her experiences with racism and sexual harassment in medical school and residency, and how cultural competency can heal communities and improve health outcomes.

We’ll learn about the challenges they’ve faced in their journeys, explore the importance of representation, and see how women on the forefront of science and medicine lift up others and build toward a better tomorrow.

In the first episode of this series, we're featuring Dr. Monica McLemore, a professor at UCSF who researches reproductive health and rights. We discuss her journey through nursing and public health, the power of social media, and the ethical need to get the community involved in the research process.

Welcome to our third installment of “The Spotlight”! In this episode, we interviewed Dr. Armen Moughamiam, who is a neurology fellow at UCSF and an ambassador to both science and medicine. We discuss the educational journey of an MD/PhD, experiencing “unknown unknowns”, and staying motivated in this long (but rewarding!) path.

A cell constantly interacts and adapts to its environment, making seemingly smart choices. But how can a single cell, without a centralized control center, solve such complex problems? Is there simple physics behind the complex measurement and feedback that goes on inside cells? In this episode, we speak to Dr. Wallace Marshall, Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at UCSF, about his work to determine how cells measure and regulate optimal size. In the process, we discuss diffusion, molecular motors, the cell’s ever-changing skeletons, and the idea of a software to engineer cells in the future.

This episode was written and produced by Arja Ray, Devika Nair, and Katie Cabral with editing help from the rest of the Carry the One Radio team. Music used in this episode includes Partly Sage, Denzel Sprak, Hundred Mile, Tiny Putty, Highway 94, Guild Rat, Game Hens, The Zeppelin, Beignet, Balti, Loopy, Dorica, and Dance of Felt by Blue Dot Sessions.

In this episode, we’re turning back the clock to our earliest days - just after birth. What happens to our brains in this sensitive time of life? More than we ever thought, it turns out. We spoke with Dr. Mercedes Paredes, assistant professor of neurology at UCSF, to learn more about how humans’ brain cells are still moving and changing even after we’re born. As we learn more about the brain’s initial stages, we can better understand its vulnerabilities. Not only that, but we can also figure out how to intervene early on to stave off neurological problems like psychiatric illness or epilepsy.

This episode was written and produced by Stella Belonwu, Rebecca Fang, Deanna Necula, and Ben Mansky. Music in this episode includes “A Day at the Park,” “Fomalhaut,” and “Convergence” by Pictures of the Floating World and “Autowaschanlage Instrumental” by Lobo Loco.

For this second installment of “The Spotlight” we spoke to Dr. Rachel Care, a newly minted PhD who studies how the retina adapts to losing vision. We talked about her path to research, the changing landscape of graduate education, and night vision goggles.

Dr. David Gordon studies HIV. In Life/Science, a mini-series produced in collaboration with the UCSF Quantitative Biosciences Institute, we're giving you a peek behind the curtain. This isn't just a series about science, it's also about the process, about what it actually means to do this kind of research - including the confusion, failures, and triumphs David has faced along the way.

In the final episode of Life/Science, we reveal what David found in his gigantic experiment, and how his findings might lead to new avenues for HIV treatment. We also break down the process of how a scientific finding makes it from the lab to the world at large.

If you like what you hear, give us a like or leave a comment! We'd love to hear from you. Music featured in this episode comes from Podington Bear and Blue Dot Sessions. Other contributors to David's research include Ariane Watson, Assen Roguev, and Nevan Krogan. This episode was written and produced by Ben Mansky and Elina Kostyanovskaya, with help from Katie Cabral. Support for Life/Science comes from the Quantitative Biosciences Institute at UCSF.
