This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about how things start. First, we'll be joined by a physical scientist who's uncovered a secret about how water begins to freeze. Then, we'll chat with a health scientist who will tell us about how to start a revolution in healthy behaviors. 

Pharmaceutical Journal

This week on UnDisciplined, we're going to chat with a scientist who is trying to solve a big challenge: engineering blood vessels for transplantation into human bodies. After that, we'll talk to a researcher who is trying to solve a challenge that might be even bigger: reducing gender pay disparities in corporate America.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about artificial intelligence, great white sharks, illegal pollution, snail genes, and new rules for leaders at the National Institutes of Health. That's right, it's the May Science News Roundup. 

UnDisciplined: Superlatives And Survival

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about big things and small things, loud things and fast things, things that kill and things that survive being killed — but we're doing it a little differently than normal.

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

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about big animals like wolves, bears and lions — and really tiny life forms, like yeast. 

By happenstance, we're joined by two researchers whose recent work comes out of the same university, but who are meeting for the first time on a public radio program recorded hundreds of miles from either one of them. 

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. 

The Indian Express

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. 

Center for Disease Control

Our eyes contain small, complex cells with many important jobs. A new major grant at Utah State University aims to increase our understanding of one of these specific types of cells in our eyes - retinal pigmented epithelium cells, also known as RPE cells.

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. 

Genetic Literacy Project

This week on UnDisciplined, we're joined by a scientist who helped create a transgenic mouse that can help us understand the human relationship with a vital molecule. We'll also chat with a researcher who just announced the discovery of nearly 50 new species right here in Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

Each week on UnDisciplined, we bring two researchers together to talk about their recent work. 

This week, we're joined first by Karen Lloyd, whose research suggests microbial dark matter may be all around us. Then, we talked to Jacob Freeman, who uses trash to study the synchronous rise and fall of societies. 

Utah State University

Paul Rogers is racing to save a one-tree forest. Lisa Berreau is trying to prove that carbon monoxide can be good for us. Like we do every week, we'll try to draw connections between these two very different areas of work. 

USU Food Science Students Create Recipe For Success

Earning a top spot in a national food science competition takes more than proving yourself as a chef, according to Vidita Deshpande, a Ph.D. candidate studying food science at Utah State University. She said perfecting the chemistry in food is what takes the cake in competitions by professional organizations like the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT).

On The Streets Of New York

James Cutting studies the way moviemakers exploit human emotions to tell stories. Zach Gompert examines fundamental questions about evolutionary genetics. Together, we talk about how things change over time and whether we can predict those changes.

The Number Of West Nile Cases In Horses Is On The Rise

Jul 23, 2018

Mosquito pools in Box Elder, Davis and Uintah counties have been tested positive for West Nile Virus. State health officials are warning people to take precautions. Veterinarians are warning people to take precautions for horses and other animals.

Wildfires are destroying millions of acres every year according to the National Centers for Environment Information. Many of these fires are human caused, but fuel like cheat grass causes fires to burn faster and hotter. Researchers in Utah are working to implement fire resistant plants into western landscapes to reduce the damage.

Experimenting with new crop varieties adds to the many risks farmers already face, according to experts at Utah State University. USU research farms throughout the state are working with farmers to eliminate risks by creating a more efficient food system.

USU researchers are developing a device that would wrap around the propellers of water craft used by smugglers, pirates or terrorists. Biology professor Randy Lewis, said the device would be designed to stop boats laden with explosives like the one that a

A Utah lawmaker's proposals that would allow terminally ill people to use certain forms of marijuana and farmers to grow it for research purposes passed their first hurdle in a committee despite criticism that the piecemeal approach doesn't go far enough.

Rep. Brad Daw, a Republican from Orem, said during a hearing Wednesday that the measures help dying people try another alternative that may help and provides a way for researchers to get marijuana locally.
