Week ???? of COVID-19 Podcasting! In this episode we come back after a short hiatus to take a closer look at the life and work of two powerhouse scientists of color; the incomparable Dr. Mae Jemison, and the inimitable Dr. Marie Maynard Daly. We discuss the wide range of Dr. Jemison's work from engineer, to physician, to becoming the first black woman to travel into outer space as a NASA astronaut, all while maintaining out of this world performing skills. We also delve into the formidable life of Dr. Daly and how she was the first black woman to earn a Ph.D. in Chemistry and essentially laid the groundwork for the Human Genome Project with her research on histone proteins. Rene also teaches Sam a thing or two about nuclei separation methods and how through Dr. Daly’s work we now know about the 4 bases in a DNA cell.
