About This Show
Supplemental material, in science speak, usually refers to the data and results that are critical for understanding a research study but don’t make it into print. In this spirit, we provide a behind-the-scenes look into The Jackson Laboratory. We have conversations with the JAX team about their research, the state of science and its future, and their passions and motivations. We also talk a lot about food.

Episode 7 - At the heart of clinical genetics
For Episode 7, we interview physician-scientist and JAX-GM Assistant Professor Travis Hinson. Travis discusses what his joint appointment with UConn Health means for his research into the genomic basis of cardiovascular disorders. We also got to explore Travis’s northward journey from Louisiana and through Philadelphia and Boston before finally settling in Connecticut. You’ll also hear us discuss cool in vitro assays, vacationing in Italy and the Big Easy, Cajun food, fishing (and noodling!), and the majestic Yard Goat.
