Istvan & His Imaginary Band

Science Sunday -- PWS: From Bedside to Bench and Back to Bedside

April 22nd, 2018, 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Dr. Lara Pullen, who has a son with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), tells for the first time the story of how she identified a novel drug (Pitolisant) to treat this devastating genetic syndrome. She will describe the horrifying, yet intriguing, symptom of cataplexy and its dramatic impact on her son.

Science Sunday -- Scurvy: Lost and Found. And Found. And… Found (Again)

April 15th, 2018, 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Do you think pirate talk was all “Avast, ye miserable scallywags!” and “Shiver me timbers!”? Likely you’d also hear mutters along the lines of “Ow, me teeth hurt!” and “Argh, me aching bones!” Life on the sea was more scurvy than it was swagger, in no small part because we kept losing the ubiquitous yet elusive cure for this dreaded vitamin deficiency. From the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Horn, from Greenland to Antarctica, come and hear tell of the convoluted tale of the Scourge of the Seas!
