We celebrate Medical Research Week with a live broadcast from the Melbourne Museum.Fay Khong, Ph.D student at St Vincent's Hospital, drops by to chat about her research into the effect of diabetes on the heart, Dr Tom Brodnicki from the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research discusses environmental and genetics factors that contribute to juvenile diabetes, as well as his non-obese diabetic (NAD) mouse model, and, finally, Dr Vance Matthews from the Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute looks at the link between obesity and diabetes, as well as his research into overcoming insulin resistance. Dr Andi also finds that the back of Chris KP's hand is chock-a-block with pain sensors, oil glands, nerves, sweat glands, blood vessels - and quite a few hairs.http://einsteinagogo.net/
