UnDisciplined: The Climate Scientist And The Cancer Biologist

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking to researchers on two sides of a huge scientific challenge. Our first guest researches climate — that means she only has one test subject to work with: the Earth. Our second guest studies cancer, which presents differently in humans and other organisms. That means she has endless test subjects. 

What's the bigger challenge? We'll discuss that — and more.

Joining us on the line from Boulder, Colo., where she is a doctoral candidate working on the diversity of El Niño events, is Danielle Lemmon

And joining us from Denver, where she studies molecular pathways that regulate the progression of cancer, is Bonnie Bullock. She is the first author on a recent study of cancer micro-environments.
