Café Connect brings you the latest research from the University of Aberdeen. In this podcast series we meet different researchers who will talk about their work and its relevance to our everyday lives.
Episode 1: Genotype Hype
The NHS in Scotland is deciding whether and how to adopt whole genome sequencing as a routine test to diagnose genetic conditions. Here Professor Zosia Miedzybrodzka, Dr Jonathan Pettitt and Dr Lynne Mennie will examine the science underlying whole genome testing, discuss the challenges and limitations of this approach and address some of the questions that still remain.
Episode 2: 525 Alumni of Achievement
A conversation with Chris Croly, Public Engagement Manager with Rob Donelson, Executive Director of Advancement and Professor Bill Naphy, on the 525 alumni of achievement project. This project celebrates the accomplishments of the University of Aberdeen’s alumni across the world and in many different walks of life. 2020 is the University’s 525th anniversary and we are seeking the names of 525 alumni of achievement to celebrate.
Episode 3: Asymptomatic carriers: the hidden epidemic
