10/17/17 Show feat. Dr. Jason McSheene on Embryonic Organ Development and Medical Writing

10/17/17 Show feat. Dr. Jason McSheene on Embryonic Organ Development and Medical Writing

Playing tracks by

Henri Pousseur and Art Feynman.

This time on These Vibes, we welcome Dr. Jason McSheene, PhD from Princeton University's Department of Molecular Biology and professional medical writer. Jason walks us through the insanity that is embryonic development: how does a growing bundle of cells know to grow organs? How does it turn various proto-organs into a spleen, kidneys, a heart? It all has to do with fluid flow and protein growth, a subject Jason mastered during his PhD work at Princeton. After this, we talk about Jason's communicative side, and how he has transitioned into the medical industry as a disseminator of diabetes information. How do you keep physicians, researchers, and pharmaceutical companies on the same page? It's all in the episode! PLUS, a big primer on gravitational waves and LIGO-Virgo's newest discovery.

A very interesting interview. Jason clearly described his molecular cell biology work as a grad student at Princeton and why zebrafish embryo development was such a useful model system to study how proto-organs get directed asymmetrically within an embryo. His professional transition into medial writing, specializing in diabetes care, was also informative. Thank you Jason and Brian!
