Join host Emily Kwong for this Short Wave podcast episode 'Searching The Ocean's Depths For Future Medicines'. The epsiode plunges us into the ocean off the west coast of Ireland down to where there's no light and the temperature is just above freezing. That's where underwater chemist Sam Afoullouss sends a deep sea robot to carefully collect samples of marine organisms, searching for unique chemistry that may one day inspire a medicine.
Short Wave is a podcast hosted by Emily Kwong covering new discoveries, everyday mysteries, and the science behind the headlines — all in about 10 minutes, every weekday. It's science for everyone, using a lot of creativity and a little humour.
