September 2nd, 2012

Episode 222 of 400 episodes

After two weeks of radiothon madness (don't forget to pay up, pledgers) the Einstein A Go Go team can get back to the real business of the week: SCIENCE! On this week's episode, Dr Shane is joined by Dr Krystal, Dr Alicia and Danger Mouse. As well as covering all the week’s biggest science announcements, Danger Mouse discusses personalised genetic medicine and the potential for re-evaluating shelved drugs for new purposes. Dr Jennifer Henry calls in from the New York Academy of Science to talk about major brain injuries and the elasticity of our most astounding organ and Dr Shane rounds out the show with a tribute to the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong. www.einsteinagogo.net
