This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about some pretty scary things. 

Foundation for Economic Education

This week on UnDisciplined, we're gathering the gang for another science news round-up. 

As we talk about some of the biggest stories in science over the past few weeks, we'll be joined by a biomedical researcher, a wildland ecologist and an experimental psychologist. 

UnDisciplined: Making A Scientific Match

Every week on UnDisciplined, we put to researchers from completely different fields together and see what connections they can make.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're gathering up a motley gang of science geeks to talk about some of the biggest stories in science over the past few weeks.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about the intersection of science and personal decision-making — and, of course, we're looking at it from two very different perspectives.

In UnDisciplined's first ever monthly science news roundup, we're joined by three researchers, plus a fellow science enthusiast, to take a look at recent science news through a bunch of different perspectives. 

National Institutes of Health

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about why we don't do the things we know we should do. Why, for instance, don't we get as much sleep as we're supposed to? And why do we often withhold information from our doctors?

We're talking about the ways warfare can build bonds in tribal societies, and how air pollution can have devastating effects in our modern world.

This week on UnDisciplined, we unpack two studies that are changing conventional wisdom. 

Our first guest is Ella Bean, who is changing the way people think about neanderthals.

Our second guest, Brendan Murphy, wants to reconsider the way we think about wildfires.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about really small things, like cell cultures and their effect on research, and really big things, like our planet's climate and its effect on human movement.

What do Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson have to do with ending crime waves and curing blindness? We'll find out this week when we're joined by guests Elizabeth Vargis and Sherry Towers.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about how evolving research impacts health recommendations. 

First, we're joined by Sarah Hartz, who believes that what you've been told about alcohol consumption is probably wrong. 

Then, we'll talk to Theo Ross, whose work shows that the health advice that comes from personal genetic testing often turns out to be wrong, too. 

Institute of Zoology

This week on UnDiscipined, we're talking about extending life — how nature does it and how humans might do it. Grace DiRenzo investigates the way animals evolve to beat deadly natural chemicals. Laura Niedernhofer studies natural chemicals that might help us prevent aging and put off death. Together, we'll talk about Fisetin, frogs, fungus, zombies and immortality.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about the way people and animals move from place to place. Rick Geddes studies economic solutions for reducing traffic. Lori Spears is an entomologist who helps develop ways to keep non-native insects out of North America. 

Utah State University

Two years ago, Utah State University received legislative funding to build a new Life Sciences building on the Logan main campus. As the building nears completion, focuses are shifting towards its neighbor-- the Biology and Natural Resources building, or BNR.
