Sioxsie Wiles: Roald Dahl recipe toxicology

From Nine To Noon, 11:49 am on 16 December 2020

Science commentator Siouxsie Wiles joins Kathryn to talk about a new study which describes a potential way to test for Covid that uses a smartphone and gives results in 30 minutes. Soothing words and music during surgery appears to reduce pain levels and the need for pain drugs afterwards. And each year the British Medical Journal pulls out some Christmas gems - this year they've got a tool that can help you calculate the likely toxic effects of George's Marvellous Medicine, from the book by Roald Dahl.

Associate Professor Dr Siouxsie Wiles is the head of Bioluminescent Superbugs Lab at the University of Auckland.
