To the Depths of Drug Discovery
Natural products have been harnessed for their therapeutic properties throughout the history of medicine. Land-dwelling – or terrestrial organisms – have naturally dominated the focus of scientists wanting to access nature’s pharmacopeia. But an untapped resource of natural products, large in size and potential, was close by – we just couldn’t access it.

The Placebo Response ‒ A Powerful Phenomenon
In a recent interview, Technology Networks had the pleasure of speaking with Professor Ted J. Kaptchuk, leading figure in placebo studies and a scholar of East Asian medicine, about the importance of humanistic dimensions of care, what is currently known about the neurobiology and genetics of placebo effects, open-label placebo studies and ethical use of placebos in clinical practice.
Sequencing Life on Earth, One Eukaryote at a Time
The Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), described as a “moonshot” project for biology, aims to sequence, catalog and characterize the genomes of the 1.8 million named eukaryotes on Earth, in just 10 years. Technology Networks spoke to the scientists leading the project to learn about its progress and how it will help the Earth's biodiversity crisis.
