This week on the On Your Mind Neuroscience Podcast:  We're joined by special guest Dr. Brad Dieter who tells us about his journey from running people on treadmills to running proteins on a gel.  Then we discuss the challenges of preparing for conferences, the importance of colour coordination, and taking classes way to late into grads school.  On Our Minds: Liam has been dreaming of telling a story in The Bench Warmers, a new podcast featuring tales from grad school, and we all swap stories of the most expensive things we’ve ever broken in the lab.   Then he finds another excuse to talk about CRISPR, this time it’s about who should win the Nobel Prize for the discovery, why it might be a different person than the patent holder, and why this whole process completely misrepresents science. Brad has been spending a lot of time thinking about the ethics of human cloning, and can’t figure out why it would be such a bad thing. And frankly we can’t either. Kat has been digging deep into the field of predatory journals, who made over $75 million last year Paper: This week’s paper is about how the stress response factor NRF2 regulates the degradation of phosphorylated Tau in models of Alzheimer’s disease (Readcube link)
