Science Books: Interview with Richard Kirwan, former director of the Ordnance Survey about his book 'If Maps Could Speak'.
The Question Is?: Can scientists develop pro-biotic products that can prevent obesity and even colon cancer? We ask Catherine Stanton, a probiotic researcher based at Teagasc.
What's it All About?: Undetected brain seizures in newborns can cause serious problems later in life. New technology, being developed in Cork can help earlier detection and intervention, leading to better outcomes for the children later in life. We discuss the technology, with Geraldine Boylan, a researcher at the Neonatal Research Unit at UCC, who is part of the technology development team.
