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

#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

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

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
