Listening tip: biotech podcast for nerds & cool guys


In the podcast serie “I AM BIO” you can listen to “powerful stories of biotechnology breakthroughs, the people they help, the global problems they solve, and the politicians with the power to mess it all up.” Without saying, the latest episodes are all about the current covid-19 crisis and how biotechnological science and innovation must get us out of this crisis by delivering treatments and a vaccine. In the episode of April 30th, Alnylam’s CEO John Maraganore explains how RNA interference (RNAi) therapy might be able to destroy the RNA genome of the coronavirus and with it its ability to replicate and kill. Definitely worth listening. You can find the episode here: https://iambio.simplecast.com/episodes/destroying-genome
