Science Surveys, IVF and Vibrating Moths

We finally defeated the gremlins and managed to actually record episode 14 of For Science!

For this episode Mags and James were joined by Dr Mel Thomson from Deakin University. Dr Thomson is a micro-biologist who's currently involved with a project looking at the effectiveness of using maggots as a debridement treatment for a particularly nasty bacteria.

This episode we talk about:

Three Parent IVF Techniques

The ABC's Science Forum

Using sugar instead of radioactive dies to detect tumours under and MRI

Moths that vibrate their genitals to throw bats off their game

and the value of the recent Australian Acadamy of Science "Science Survey".
