The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine this week launched “Inside U Miami Medicine,” a new podcast that gives listeners an in-depth look into academic medicine’s discoveries and innovations, from the exemplary people who make them possible.
“These are unscripted, one-on-one conversations with the brilliant faculty here at the Miller School,” said Dean Henri R. Ford, M.D., M.H.A., who is also host of the series. “It’s a treat to hear their personal perspectives and the journeys that brought them to where they are today—advancing discovery that can be translated into clinical interventions to improve the health of our community and the world.”
Two “Inside U Miami Medicine” episodes will be released per month and will be available on all podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart Radio, and others.
The first episode, “Improving Diversity in Alzheimer’s Disease Data,” features Margaret A. Pericak-Vance, Ph.D., director of the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics and the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Professor of Human Genetics. Dr. Pericak-Vance shares insight into the importance of a multicenter, multinational clinical trial that will expand diversity in Alzheimer’s data, eventually leading to targeted drug therapies.
In the second episode, “Dying to Remember,” James Galvin, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Comprehensive Center for Brain Health and professor of neurology, speaks about an innovative new drug he and his team are testing for dementia with Lewy bodies, a disease that affects an estimated 1.4 million Americans.
Tune in for two new episodes each month!
