Dr Shane and the team talk with Associate Professor David Tingay from MCRI, about a study that used cutting-edge technology, electrical impedance tomography (EIT), to take highly detailed images deep inside newborns’ lungs. Babies adapt to air-breathing at birth using complex methods of moving gas in their lungs not seen later in life, with crying especially important to this process.
Also on the show is Adriana Zanca, talking about how PhDs and ECRs are underpaid at universities.
