Listen to Science teaching, antibiotic dosing, microplastics recycling, ancient shoes and why cats go crazy for tuna51:0917 September 2023

Dr Shane interviews Dr Alice Terrill from Monash University whose research seeks to rationalise antibiotic dosing regimens using different laboratory techniques, combined with modelling to characterise bacterial responses to antibiotics over time. Next up is Bec Russell Saunders, a Science Teacher from Wesley College who has taught in both public and independent sectors. Bec discusses biology and chemistry teaching in the classroom and instilling a love of science in students.

Gracie dials in from Texas to share some science news about innovative ways to recycle plastics, and Sarah and Chris in the studio reveal some insights from research about why cats go crazy over tuna, and what shoes we used to wear as ancient humans.
