- Training for a marathon: It’s all I think about these days (Boston April 16th, baby!) but I was never an athlete when I was younger. Exercise has become essential to my emotional well-being, and distance running is great for a biochemist who teaches metabolism.
- Women in STEM: Who are the scientists you should know about who just happen(ed) to have two X chromosomes? Travel in time to meet Grace Hopper, Lise Meitner, Marie Maynard Daly, Jennifer Doudna, and others.
- Proteins and enzymes: How do we know what we know about our gene products? How are they made, what do they do for us, and what happens with things fall apart? Do athletes really need to take protein supplements? We’ll explore the intricate machinery of protein biosynthesis.
- Adventures in undergraduate research: Imagine a fish and a net at midnight in London. The story gets crazier from there.
