From digging for dinosaurs to battling Covid: How research endeavors come together to impact society


We delved into the archives for this compilation episode. With society facing challenges on an unprecedented scale, debates are rife around the question, “How should universities and their researchers prioritize research outcomes with societal impact.”

In our two Bye Bye Blue Sky episodes and our interview on Societal Impact, SDG Research & Universities, societal impact was a popular topic of discussion.

This episode draws together the insights of those three guest experts. You’ll hear from:

  • Professor Lee Cronin, Regius Chair of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow in the UK, heads up the Cronin Group, whose research interests include finding alien life
  • Dr. Andrew Hamilton, President of New York University in the US, whose research focuses on improving the treatment of conditions like cancer
  • And Professor Aluísio Segurado, who successfully juggles his twin roles as Professor of Infectious Diseases and Head of Research at Brazil’s University of São Paulo.
