Dr Shane, Dr Jen, Andrea and Dr Euan bring you all the week’s hottest science, including the wild weather across Melbourne and Australia, cephalopods modifying their own RNA, cannibalism in early human ancestors, and the Cassini spacecraft’s Grand Finale.
The team talk to Dr Lincon Stamp from the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne about the work done by a Melbourne research team involving Stem cell transplants that offer hope for sufferers of gut disorders.
They also chat with Dr Sarah Stephenson, Neurogenetics Researcher at the Bruce Lefroy Centre for Genetic Health Research, and Honorary in the Deptartment of Paediatrics, The University of Melbourne, about the use of genetically diverse mouse colonies, which. she hopes will fast-track her studies of Parkinson's disease.
