Guests include Lisa Coussens, associate professor of pathology in the UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center; Cynthia Lemere, associate neuroscientist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and associate professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School; and Israel Charo, associate director and senior investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and a professor of medicine at UCSF.
