Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 028 - One of the Greatest Quests in the World of Genetics

    Dr. Richard Lifton describes his scientific journey, which has changed how doctors treat hypertension: a condition that affects approximately one billion people worldwide...

    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guest: Dr. Richard Lifton, Chairman of the Department of Genetics; Sterling Professor of Genetics, Medicine and Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at the Yale School of Medicine; and Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute

    Dr. Lifton has been on a quest to understand the genetic basis of hypertension, the most important risk factor associated with cardiovascular disease, which affects nearly a billion people worldwide. And since his discoveries have actually changed how doctors treat hypertension, it would be fair to say that his work has improved the lives of millions.

    I think there is an important underlying story here, and it is not about the genetics of cardiovascular disease, but of scientific endeavor. There are some great challenges ahead of us, and no matter how complex the problem, we shouldn't be discouraged from taking them head on...
