In the Hive – The Enigmatic Protein

What do you know about diseases? Why should we invest money and resources into researching pandemics? Today on the show, we’ll explore how a curious little protein causes a deadly degenerative disease. Pockets of Utah are already infected, and as the disease spreads around the globe, learn how scientists are trying everything they can to slow an unstoppable force. But, they’re shooting in the dark.

Producer Tim Pierce gives us the story.

Guests:
Department of Wildlife Resources Big Game Coordinator Covy Jones
Disease Ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, Paul Cross, Ph.D
Kristen Davenport, DVM/Ph.D
