Understanding science

#143 – John Ioannidis, M.D., D.Sc.: Why most biomedical research is flawed, and how to improve it

“We need to defend our method. We need to defend our principles. We need to defend the honesty of science in trying to communicate it rather than building exaggerated promises or narratives that are not realistic.” —John Ioannidis

COVID-19

A few things worth checking out: 12-13-2020

COVID-19 vaccine concerns; visualizing cell signaling pathways; IQ points

COVID-19

#137 – Paul Offit, M.D.: An expert perspective on COVID-19 vaccines

“When people talk to me about how nervous they are that antibodies are fading, I’m not sure you should be nervous about it yet. Let’s wait to see what happens as we move forward with these vaccines.” — Paul Offit

Sleep

#126 – Matthew Walker, Ph.D.: Sleep and immune function, chronotypes, hygiene tips, and addressing questions about his book

“It’s not time that heals all wounds. It’s actually time during REM sleep and dreaming that provides this emotional convalescence.” — Matthew Walker, Ph.D.

Aging

#123 – Joan Mannick, M.D. & Nir Barzilai, M.D.: Rapamycin and metformin—longevity, immune enhancement, and COVID-19

“I think what the mTOR inhibitors are doing is not stopping people from getting infected [with a virus], but if you get infected, there’s a better immune response and your symptoms will be milder.” — Joan Mannick

Ketosis

#120 – AMA with Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D., Part II of II: Ketosis for cancer and chronic disease, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the effect of ketosis on female health

“The function of the mitochondria and mitochondrial health are the ultimate mitigator of neurodegenerative diseases…just by reducing the potential for reactive oxygen species related damage.” — Dom D’Agostino

COVID-19

#117 – Stanley Perlman, M.D., Ph.D.: Insights from a coronavirus expert on COVID-19

“There’s really no evidence so far that says this virus has changed in a way that makes it unlikely a vaccine will work, unlikely that a previous infection will protect you from a second infection–there may be reasons why it won’t, but it won’t be because the virus is changing.” — Stanley Perlman

COVID-19

#115 – David Watkins, Ph.D.: A masterclass in immunology, monoclonal antibodies, and vaccine strategies for COVID-19

“As we stand here with the coronavirus epidemic three months old, I think we should have faith that science will find a solution to this.” — David Watkins

COVID-19

SARS-CoV-2 and the host response: psychological stress

I’ve been thinking a lot about the role of psychological stress and how it relates to our response to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The importance of red teams

“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself—and you are the easiest person to fool.” —Richard Feynman
