A collection of literary and music performances taped at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego between 1993 and 2002. Poets, writers, actors and musicians performed to sell out audiences. Recorded on 02/10/2019.

Insulin is necessary to utilize the energy we obtain from carbohydrates. Diabetes is characterized by a relative or absolute lack of insulin production. Dr. Sarah Kim explores the use of synthetic insulin in diabetic patients and explains that taking insulin in a way that mimics natural insulin production is best for keeping glucose in a healthy range.

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.

Genetic testing has become a routine part of pregnancy, but what do the results mean? Genetic counselors play a valuable role in interpreting your results and guiding you through the process of what to do with that information. Dr. Julia Cormano sits down with genetic counselors Christina Brock and Andrea Procko to find out how they support patients throughout pregnancy.

Tony Wynshaw-Boris, MD, PhD describes his lab's efforts to use mouse and IPSC models to find commonalities that give insight into the complex disorder of autism.

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.

Microbiome expands the genetic and functional capacity of its human
host. Susan Lynch explains that human microbiome develops early in life and that gut microbes shape immune function and relate to disease outcomes in childhood. She also explores next-generation microbiome therapeutics and research. Recorded on 11/07/2019.

Ticks are vectors for human disease, including Lyme disease. Semay Chou studies the vector–pathogen relationships at UCSF. Here she discusses strategies for blocking tick-borne diseases and what we can learn from ticks. Recorded on 11/14/2019.

A world leader in efforts to untangle the contributions of genes and environment in the expression of common diseases, much of Dr. Esteban Burchard's work centers on childhood asthma, for which he runs the worlds largest cohort of diverse patients in an effort to better understand the risk factors for the disease and the predictors of outcomes and responses to therapy. He has also made major contributions in the areas of health disparities, precision medicine, and the promotion of underrepresented populations in the health professions. As the child of a single mother growing up in one of San Francisco's poorest neighborhoods, Dr. Burchards unique background makes him particularly sensitive to issues surrounding health equity. Esteban Burchard is Professor of Pharmacy and Medicine at UCSF and director of the UCSF Center on Genes, Environment and Health.
