The New England Biolabs podcast series, Lessons from Lab and Life, is dedicated to sharing helpful life lessons from successful scientists. From an overview of cutting edge research to finding sources of inspiration, our podcasts can be enjoyed by science enthusiasts that like to ponder “what it all means”. Listen as leading researchers draw lessons from where scientific concepts (and misconceptions) have come from, where they are now, and where they are headed in the not-too-distant future.
