UnDisciplined: Science News Roundup - November 2019

Dec 10, 2019

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about the discovery of an essential element for life on a meteorite, using A.I. for archaeology, and vampire bat buddies. It's time for the monthly science news roundup. 

We're joined this month by Mirella Meyer-Ficca of Utah State University, who first joined us last year to talk about her team's work to genetically engineer a mouse that is dependent on niacin in the same way as humans.

We're also joined by Shannon Tushingham, a professor of archaeology at Washington State University who previously joined the program to talk about her research using chemical analysis to determine the age and contents of Native American tobacco pipes.

Finally, making her UnDisciplined debut this month is Neda Latfizadeh, who studies physics and astronomy at the University of Utah.
