In the final episode of the Human Developmental Biology Initiative’s podcast, hip-hop artist Aubz meets Oxford University scientist Shankar Srinivas and they discuss questions such as what is human developmental biology and why is it important?
At the end of the episode, the pair will write and record an original piece of music inspired by their meeting, exploring science in a brand new way.
“We speak of science as one thing, and it’s not. It’s many different things.”– Shankar Srinivas
