Flu Season! Biochemistry on NPR. YAY!

Robert Krulwich - star of one of my favorite podcasts - RadioLab - narrates a molecular tour of viral infection. Medical illustrator David Bolinsky first came to my awareness through an animation he made in conjunction with Harvard University for the Biovisions initiative. That animation is titled "the inner life of the cell."  Set to dramatic piano/techno music it invokes emotion about a traditionally dry subject which is what I am striving to do here.  If you visit the revamped Biovisions website you can watch a high resolution tour of the mitochondria in action.   Bolinsky's work continues to amaze me.
