    Barstool Biology - Mutations

    Barstool Biology - Mutations

    Mutants here, mutants there, mutants everywhere. Sadly I couldn't afford Professor Xavier to come on and explain all about mutations but I'll give you the low down and how they all work! How are regional mutations becoming a factor in the SARS-CoV2 Pandemic and will they affect the vaccination role out? Tune in as I spill the molecular tea.

    Barstool Biology - Coronavirus Testing

    Barstool Biology - Coronavirus Testing

    Have you or know someone who's been tested for Coronavirus over the last few months? What the hell happens once that swab from your beak or blood sample reaches the lab?

    Biochemist and CEO of Reagent Genie Dr. Colm Ryan joins me to break down the processes by which both active COVID-19 infection and antibody testing are carried out. We pull back the curtain to reveal the magic involved and how we can use the testing going forward, as countries start to re-open.

    Barstool Biology - Immunology & Vaccines

    Barstool Biology - Immunology & Vaccines

    Immunologist Dr. Andrew Hogan is the first guest on Barstool Biology, to discuss all things immune systems. What exactly does your guardian angel immune system do to SARS-Cov-2 and keep the virus at bay?

    And with so much anticipation for a vaccine, we describe why these treatments can take so long to get into patients and the types currently in clinical trials. Herd immunity, what is it and is it a viable option without a vaccine? Andy gives us the low down.

Barstool biology.. Dr. Andrew Hogan

So wonderfully heartwarming to hear 2 very well educated northsiders discuss such a relevant and important topic. But then again I may be a little biased ;)
Well done little Bro ..

I’ve been mispronouncing virus

Really great podcast. Wasn’t sure what I’d be listening to, but a really relatable way of sharing scientific info. Enjoyed the subliminal message that made me drink a beer while listening.

Insightfulness for the common man

Very informative and insightful. Information broken down so that even I can comprehend the science while enjoying a whisky.
