Dr. James Duffy, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF, explores classical Daoist Chinese medicine. This traditional knowledge spans centuries and is a highly sophisticated system that offers an alternative for health care needs. Duffy is an integrative psychiatrist interested in integrative approaches to mental healthcare that includes evidence-based and whole-system (i.e. classical Chinese medicine) approaches. Recorded on 03/07/2019.

Marion Nestle (NYU) and Laura Schmidt (UCSF) discuss nutrition policy and research, scientific conflicts of interest, the upcoming Dietary Guidelines, global food systems and more in this conversation about the food industry's influence on scientific research. Recorded on 02/07/2019.

In this Front Row presentation, Kristian Andersen shares how he, with a global network of collaborators, applies a 'team science' approach to deciphering outbreaks of emerging diseases such as Ebola and Lassa Virus. His highly cross-disciplinary work combines next-generation sequencing, computational biology, experimentation and field work to investigate how viruses emerge and cause large-scale outbreaks. Recorded on 08/15/2019.

Hear from the ten finalists in the Global Challenge to Prevent Breast Cancer Competition. Each presents a bold idea on prevention research that will help catalyze an entirely new direction in research — focused on prevention. The program is introduced by Marion Kavanaugh-Lynch, the director of the California Breast Cancer Research Program. Recorded on 05/15/2019.

In the United States, privacy is considered a fundamental right. Yet today our activities are followed to a degree unfathomable not long ago by way of cell phones, online behaviors, and more. As genomic technologies continue to expand, another avenue now exists by which we may potentially be scrutinized: DNA sequence. Our genetic information contains our most private details, but we leave it everywhere and share the sequence closely with dozens or even hundreds of relatives. Laura Rivard, PhD, professor of biology at the University of San Diego, discusses ways in which our DNA may "escape" from our control, what can actually be done with the sequence, and whether there is cause for concern.

As societal stresses have increased, loneliness and social isolation have become silent killers. Dilip Jeste, MD, a geriatric neuropsychiatrist who specializes in successful aging, explains how loneliness has become an epidemic, the risk factors, helpful interventions, and how we can harness wisdom for compassion, self regulation, and more.

Nationally, there are approximately 18,000 patients on the liver transplant list. Annually, about 6,000 patients receive a liver transplant. Because of the organ shortage, many patients waiting for liver transplants die on the list or become too sick to undergo transplant. Dr. John Roberts offers these solutions: expanded criteria donors, split livers and living donors. Recorded on 10/30/2019.

A major ambition of artificial intelligence lies in translating patient data to successful therapies. Machine learning models face particular challenges in biomedicine, however, including handling of extreme data heterogeneity and lack of mechanistic insight into predictions. Trey Ideker, PhD argues for "visible" approaches that guide model structure with experimental biology.

There are a range of therapies for back pain: painkillers, massages, exercise and surgery. But when is which therapy advisable? And what can you do to prevent back pain? Plus: raw vegan diet and treatments for spider veins.
