Lab 004 - Protect Ya Neck

Welcome back, friends! Lab 004 was all about vaccines. This episode was important for us to address, especially with rise of measles and mumps outbreaks in the US.

We want to give a big thank you to our guest expert, Dr. Rupali Limaye. Read more about Dr. Limaye and her work.


If you can’t get enough of vaccines and outbreaks, be sure to check out one of my favorite movies about them - Outbreak, Contagion, or District 9. I will point out that these are not necessarily scientifically accurate (especially not District 9), but fun to watch with a little more understanding

Remember when we mentioned understanding the distrust of the medical field? If you want to learn more about that, check out Medical Apartheid by Harriet Washington.
