We can answer that — a podcast series

The podcast where we sit down with UCalgary professors, researchers and experts to get the answers to five questions submitted by you.

Episode 11: Medic mushrooms

We speak with Dr. Peter Facchini, a professor of biochemistry and chief scientific officer of MagicMed, about studying the medicinal properties of psilocybin mushrooms and other drugs, and how synthesizing and improving them could lead to better mental health treatments. 

Episode 10: Can you spare some (higher ed) change? 

We talk to Dr. Stephen Larter, PhD, UCalgary's associate vice president of research and innovation, about how post-secondaries need to adapt to a changing world and how a university can help spark an economic recovery.

Episode 9: Medical assistance in dying

We talk to Dr. Beverly Adams, the senior associate dean of education at the Cumming School of Medicine, about how medical assistance in dying can offer choice and dignity to grievously sick patients and how medical schools are adapting to the practice.
