The promise of ice cream that won’t melt before youget a chance to eat it has thrust physicist and biologist Cait MacPhee and her science team at the University of Edinburgh into a bit of media frenzy as newspapers and radio stations compete over her for the tantalizing details. We discuss what else her breakthrough can be used for.


Computer scientist Irina Rish tells us about her cutting edge mental health research at IBM’s Watson Computer Research Center in New York. By using advanced and powerful computer systems to analyze large amounts of brain scan data, she aims to better understand schizophrenia, autism, ADHD, and other conditions that affect the brain as a whole instead of one specific area of damage.
