    How Cancer Genomics is Transforming Cancer Care - Sanjay Popat

    How Cancer Genomics is Transforming Cancer Care - Sanjay Popat

    Using lung cancer as a case study, this lecture will explore the transformative impact of genomics on personalised cancer treatment.

    What are the challenges of implementing tumour sequencing in routine care, its effect on drug development, and how can we maximise clinical benefit? How is the new technology of circulating tumour DNA analysis (liquid biopsy) used by healthcare systems? What is the potential future impact of using DNA analysis to screen for cancers early?


    This lecture was recorded by Sanjay Popat on 23rd January 2024 at Barnard's Inn Hall, London

    #404 The Truth About Sugar, Alcohol, Caffeine, Protein & Exercise with Neuroscientist Dr Tommy Wood

    #404 The Truth About Sugar, Alcohol, Caffeine, Protein & Exercise with Neuroscientist Dr Tommy Wood

    This extra special – and slightly different – episode of the podcast is for anyone who’s ever felt confused about best practice for good health. If you’ve wondered which diet is the best one for your health, or if you are confused about how much protein you should be consuming - or whether a little bit of alcohol has any health benefit at all - then I have just the guest for you. 


    Dr Tommy Wood is Assistant Professor of Paediatrics and Neuroscience at the University of Washington, US. He holds a degree in biochemistry from Cambridge, a medical degree from Oxford, achieved his PhD in physiology and neuroscience in Oslo, and has published papers and lectured across the globe. It’s fair to say that when it comes to health and longevity, Tommy knows what he’s talking about. And that’s exactly why I invited him back onto my podcast for the third time. 


    He, like myself, is passionate about empowering individuals to take control of their health by simplifying the wealth of information that exists and giving people practical, realistic recommendations. In today’s conversation, Tommy and I work through a list of common areas of confusion when it comes to our wellbeing. And together we try to put the received wisdom in context, summarise the evidence, and then give nuanced, practical advice.


    We begin with alcohol, and Tommy explains that while there are no proven health benefits to drinking it, there are caveats. And that becomes a theme for this conversation. Nothing is all good, or all bad - context is always key.


    Next, we cover caffeine and its effect on performance, cognitive function, gut health, stress and, again, sleep. Then we dive deep into the hot topic of sugar, ultra-processed foods, continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) and other trackers.


    We go on to tackle protein, the minimum effective dose for exercise, the importance of building muscle, and the supplements we might want to consider taking. And for every subject we cover, Tommy exposes the common pitfalls in research methods and tells us what the science can show, but also what it can’t. 

     

    There are so many mixed messages out there when it comes to our health. Our hope is that this conversation offers a valuable lesson in critical thinking and context, and highlights the importance of taking a personalised approach to your health.

    Kenneth Pelletier, PhD, MD: Epigenetics - How lifestyle choices change our genes

    Kenneth Pelletier, PhD, MD: Epigenetics - How lifestyle choices change our genes

    Our genes are not our destiny. Those six words have the potential to change our (and our clients') perspectives on our choices, opportunities and lives. In this engaging interview with Dr. Kenneth Pelletier, he provides the growing scientific evidence and the resultant potential behind how much our genes really do (and don't) affect our outcomes. If you've ever used "it's my genes" as either an excuse or a driver of fear, this episode will open your eyes to the positive impact our daily choices can truly provide.

    Genes Do Not Control Your Health!
    Join Dr. Vic as he talks about how we have been misled on genes.  We have been told for over 50 years that genees control your health and if your family had a chronic disease, you have a very high chance of having it.  After 15+ years of research in epigenetics, we have found out that genes control our destiny of health is farther from the truth.  The truth is, lifestyle choices control your genes.   Tune in as Dr. Vic shares with you the basics of how your genes work and what you can do to empower your health towards living a long, active, vibratn life!

    Animals at the extremes: hibernation and torpor

    Animals at the extremes: hibernation and torpor
    Hibernation is an ingenious adaptation that some animals employ to survive difficult conditions in winter. This unit examines the differences between hibernation and torpor, and discusses the characteristic signs of hibernation behaviour. It explores the triggers that bring on hibernation, and whether internal signals or external season cues are predominant. It also examines the physiological adaptations that occur in hibernating animals. This unit builds on and develops ideas introduced in the openlearn unit on Animals at the extreme: the desert environment (S324_1). This study unit is just one of many that can be found on LearningSpace, part of OpenLearn, a collection of open educational resources from The Open University.

    Inheritance of characters

    Inheritance of characters
    Genes are units of inheritance that contribute to a person’s behaviour and health. In this unit you will learn what genes, DNA and chromosomes are and how they combine to make the human genome. You will also learn how the principles of inheritance work, the effect that our genetic make-up has on health, and how genetic material is passed on from generation to generation.

    Social issues and GM crops

    Social issues and GM crops
    The genetic manipulation of plants and animals and their use in agriculture is one of the most controversial scientific developments of recent times. This unt takes a look at the 'science behind the headlines' and the complex interactions between scientific and social factors. By the end of the unit it's hoped that you will have a clearer idea of both what is GM makes possible as well as what may be thought desirable.

    Animals at the extremes: the desert environment

    Animals at the extremes: the desert environment
    Animal life has adapted to survive in the most unlikely and inhospitable habitats. This unit looks at the surprisingly diverse desert climates throughout the world and mammals, birds, lizards and amphibians that survive there. It splits these animals into three groups according to their strategy for survival: evaders, evaporators and endurers, then discusses how these strategies work on a biochemical and physiological level.

    Addiction and neural ageing

    Addiction and neural ageing
    This unit looks at two topics that are of immense worldwide social, economic, ethical, and political importance – ‘addiction’ and ‘neural ageing’. You will develop a Master's level approach to the study of specific issues within these two important subject areas.

    Predictive medicine

    Predictive medicine
    In this unit you will learn how advances in genetics could change the way in which diseases are diagnosed and managed. The advent of predictive medicine, based on more detailed DNA profiling of individual genotypes using technologies like gene chips, rather than screening for one gene at a time, may shift the relationship between doctor and patient. People will be seeking advice on how to manage their susceptibilities or genetic risks, rather than looking for treatment for an already existing disorder.
