The Scientist Speaks

Science Philosophy in a Flash: A Rising Star Launches Brain Power into Outer Space

July 26, 2022

Welcome to Science Philosophy in a Flash, a mini podcast series produced by The Scientist’s Creative Services Team. In this series, we highlight researchers’ unique outlooks on what it means to be a scientist.

Alysson Muotri, a professor at the University of California, San Diego and director of the Stem Cell program, pushes the boundaries of neuroscience research. He builds brains for a living, then sends them on missions to outer space. Motivated by curiosity and creativity, his work is advancing scientists’ understanding of brain development and aging. In this episode narrated by Niki Spahich, Iris Kulbatski from The Scientist’s Creative Services Team spoke with Muotri to learn more about what being a scientist means to him.

To learn more about Muotri's work, check out the upcoming ebook Next-Level Organoids, available on July 29th here.
