Rob Knight explores the unseen microbial world that exists literally right under our noses -- and everywhere else on (and in) our bodies. He discusses the important influence the microbiome may have on the aging process and many end-of-life diseases.

A single tumor cell can contain thousands of genetic mutations, some of which provide critical information about the precise cancer type and provide clues about which therapy may be effective. Hear how genome-based analysis is improving diagnosis and treatment.

In the wilderness there is an obvious danger of being bitten by snakes, insects and arthropods. Dr. Susanne Spano offers advice on what to do in case you meet are bitten by a venomous creature far from medical help. Recorded on 05/24/2017.

From self-described army brat to a renowned physician and scientist, Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo's career success is due in part to her many interests and her ability to pursue a job in which she could thrive. Her thoughts apply to anyone committed to hard work and a balanced life, no matter the field. In this conversation with Dr. Robert Wachter, Chair of the UCSF Department of Medicine, we learn how she is helping to shape healthcare through her work both at UCSF and as the immediate past-chair of the US Preventive Services Task Force, which makes evidence-based recommendations about services such as screenings, counseling services, and preventive medications.

Dr. Hal Barron discusses what he has learned about innovation in science and medicine based on his over 20 years of experience in the biotechnology industry, and potential implications for health policy at the local, national and global level. Barron is one of the most respected clinician-scientists and successful drug developers in the biotechnology industry and serves as Calico's president of research and development. Recorded on 04.26.2017.

In discussing his new book, "Dirt is Good: The Advantage of Germs For Your Child's Developing Immune System," author and UC San Diego Professor of Pediatrics and Computer Science & Engineering Rob Knight explains how the microbiome works and offers guidance for parents on boosting their children's health.
