Meet a doctor who grew up wanting to be a geographer and who views the human body as a kind of territory to map and explore. He also finds ways of relating his patients’ ailments to ancient stories. A man in emergency has the same injury as a warrior in the Iliad; a young woman with blood poisoning in an isolation cubicle recalls Snow White in her glass casket.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
