Quick recap of the week. We learned a little more about the motivation behind observational studies (turns out they’re not just for raising my blood pressure). Also took the DeLorean out for a spin—back to 2012 when I responded to a questionable observational study on red meat and mortality.

The most interesting paper I (re-)read this week was “Twenty-five years of mTOR: Uncovering the link from nutrients to growth,” by my buddy David Sabatini. Such a great story, and an excellent tribute to those who have shaped one of the most important fields in medicine.

David and I, along with Tim Ferriss and Nav Chandel went to Easter Island to actually see the birthplace of rapamycin in 2016. If you missed it, here’s the podcast with Tim from Easter Island.
