S1E2: Eating Disorders
Dr. Patrick Sweeney, a professor in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, joins Decoding Life with MCB to discuss his lab's efforts to understand the biology behind eating disorders. MCB also sits down with UIUC Counseling Center's Dr. Michelle LeMay, a clinical counselor, and PhD student Katie Rhoades. They talk with Decoding Life about recognizing the signs that a loved one might be battling an eating disorder and ways to better understand what they're going through.
S1E1: Decoy Proteins
Dr. Erik Procko, a professor in the department of biochemistry at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, joins Decoding Life with MCB from Seattle, where he's working to develop and mass produce a COVID-19 therapeutic that will work against variant after variant. Procko takes us back to the early days of the pandemic, when his lab in UIUC's School of Molecular and Cellular Biology shifted gears from studying viruses, including Epstein-Barr virus, to SARS-CoV-2.
