Sandra Encalada describes her work that interfaces the fields of cell biology, genetics and biochemistry in understanding the role of cellular motor-based transport in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Eric Siemers, MD, Distinguished Medical Fellow at Eli Lilly and Company joins William Mobley, MD, PhD to discuss clinical trails for Alzheimer's disease. He explains the trial design, results, and future implications of the EXPEDITION3 trial for people with with mild dementia due to Alzheimer's disease. Learn more about potential treatments in the clinical trials pipeline that may impact both the symptoms and pathologies of Alzheimer's disease.

Hollis King and Michael Kurisu, both osteopathic physicians (DO's) at UC San Diego, describe how osteopathy is a hands-on medical treatment that focuses on the structure and function of the whole body, not just symptoms of disease or pain. As they explain to host Paul J. Mills, doctors of osteopathy learn the same curriculum as traditional medical students, but they approach their patients with a more integrative philosophy of healthcare.

Where does the line in digital ethics reside? As the number of social media users grows, so does the amount of data generated. This user-generated data includes sensitive and private details about people's daily lives. The details can be used to uncover valuable information about trends in human behavior. As these social and technological spheres converge, ethical concerns about the manner in which the data are collected, analyzed, and ultimately used and disseminated by companies, researchers, and the government arise. Tim K. Mackey, MAS, PhD highlights some of these challenges from the perspective of a researcher exploring the social media risk environment for prescription drug abuse.

City and Regional Planning Professor at Berkeley, Daniel Rodríguez explores the advantages of bicycle lane networks. Recorded on 02/28/2018.

Brad Stulberg explores how to sustain peak performance and avoid burnout. Stulberg argues that this means physical and mental preparation.

Yvonne (Bonnie) Maldonado, MD. Professor of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases) and Health Research and Policy; Director, Global Child Health Program; Stanford University Recorded on 03/08/2018.

Susan P. Mizner, JD. Disability Counsel, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), San Francisco Recorded on 03/08/2018.

Christina Buysse, MD. Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Stanford University School of Medicine. Helen Phung, PT Supervisor, California Children's Service, San Mateo County. Patty Wlash, Chief Therapist, California Children's Service, San Mateo County. Recorded on 03/09/2018.

Millions attempt some form of diet yet only a small fraction achieve permanent weight loss. Neuroscientists and science writers Sandra Aamodt and Darya Rose suggest what you should do instead. Recorded on 03/27/2018.

There are different types of genetic influences on people's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Douglas Galasko, MD, of the UCSD Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Disease Research Center joins William Mobley, MD, PhD to discuss these genes, how they are being studied, and what being a carrier of Alzheimer's associated genes means. Learn more about penetrance and expressivity, genome-wide association studies, and more.

Most large hospitals have targeted resources to help older adults with severe acute illness. Dr. Candace Kim, UCSF Geriatric Medicine, talks about potential stressors and specialized services. Knowing about the options and how the system works will help prepare you to navigate the hospital and care transitions more effectively. Recorded on 06/14/2018.

Flavio Vincenti, MD. Kidney Transplantation, UCSF. Chris Freise, MD. Division of Transplant Surgery, UCSF. Recorded on 05/18/2018.

People with gender dysphoria - also known as gender incongruence - feel their biological sex does not align with their true identity. We speak to a specialist about this condition and the treatment options available. Also: exploring the sense of touch. And: how problems with our teeth can cause neck pain.

Dr. Sandro Galea Dean of Boston University School of Public Health, discusses how a leading academic medical center like UCSF can harness scholarship, education, and clinical care to tackle society's thorniest problems -- problems that prevent us from achieving levels of health and well-being that we know are possible for all. Examples of UCSF's current efforts in population health and health equity are discussed along with opportunities for expanded impact. Panelists: Dr. Robert Hiatt, Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo and Dr. Daniel Lowenstein. Recorded on 05/30/2018.

California State Assembly Member David Chiu, representing the 17th Assembly District, discusses the future of health policy in California. Moderated by Dr. Andrew Bindman UCSF Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and Professor of Health Policy at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies at UCSF. Presented by the UCSF Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP). Recorded on 05/02/2018.

Across the tree of life, we can trace cancer vulnerabilities back to the origins of multicellularity. Cancer is observed in almost all multicellular phyla, including lineages leading to plants, fungi, and animals. However, species vary remarkably in their susceptibility to cancer. Amy Boddy (UCSB Integrated Anthropological Sciences Unit) discusses how this variation in cancer susceptibility is characterized by life history trade-offs, as cancer defense mechanisms are a major component of a body's maintenance. She also looks at how understanding these trade-offs in the context of evolution may help explain the variability we see in cancer susceptibility across human populations. Recorded on 07/18/2018.
