Episode 33: Gene Mutations Involved in Epilepsy and Cortical Hyperexcitability with Dr. Jeffrey Noebels (Baylor College of Medicine)
Did you know C. elegans are an ideal model for disease modeling? It may seem unlikely that such a tiny animal would work well for modeling and studying human diseases, but we believe in their power and want you to as well, so we’ve outlined a few of their strengths so you can learn more about the benefits of using C. elegans for disease modeling.

Tune into 17 Minutes of Science where we discuss with a new guest each week how science and biotech is woven into their lives. This week, we are joined by Kyle Galford to discuss his recently published paper, The FDA-approved drugs ticlopidine, sertaconazole, and dexlansoprazole can cause morphological changes in C. elegans, and how C. elegans can be used in toxicology studies.
