Oct 27th, 2020 by Unravelling Science Podcast
Prof Emma Teeling, head of Zoology at UCD is my guest on the podcast this week. Emma talks about her fascinating research into bats and how uncovering the bat genome may unlock the secrets to health and longevity. Emma discusses how studying bats can impact human health by examining their mechanisms of ageing and inflammation, her field trips to Brittany in France and how bats have undeservedly become the scapegoats of COVID-19.
She also discusses growing up in an entrepreneurial household, how being a scientist is like being an elite Olympian and the curiosity that drives her very obvious passion for what she does.
