Episode 53: Laurel Hiatt on What’s Really Happening in Your Colon
Jul 13th, 2022 by Assigned Scientist at Bachelor’s
In this episode we're joined by MD-PhD student Laurel Hiatt, whose work focuses on somatic mosaicism, or the differences between individual cells, specifically in the human colon. We talk about genetic mosaicism, cancer risk, why the colon causes so many problems, and how Laurel's work will (hopefully) help develop tools to improve screening and colorectal disease prevention.
You can find Laurel on Twitter @laurel_hiatt.
Our intro music is by Nicole Petkovich.
Thank you for listening!
