Lunch with a Burn Surgeon
November 4, 2010 § 2 Comments
I’ve recently found the podcast treasure that is the Wellcome Collection’s Packed Lunch, a series of interviews with British scientists from different fields. Especially interesting is a podcast featuring burn surgeon Isabel Jones.
Jones works at the Burns Unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. In the podcast she talks about her work, how different types of burns occur and are treated, the physiology of burn healing and the latest developments in the field.
Listen to the podcast “Isabel Jones on skin” right here:
What sets Packed Lunch apart from other science podcasts is that it goes beyond the usual subject of the research results, to look at the actual work being done to get those results. Every conversation starts with the scientist explaining the practicalities of an actual experiment they have done. It’s refreshing and interesting to hear them leave the broader perspective aside for a minute and talk about their day-to-day work.
Check out the whole podcast series here. It’s highly recommended.
