Dr. Kristin Wingfield explains the diagnosis and treatment of cycling injuries.

UC San Diego Qualcomm Institute's Larry Smarr, noted authority in information technology and high-performance computing hosts a discussion with UC San Diego's Rob Knight, leading expert on microbiomes and bioinformatics who is widely renowned for his early and innovative investigations of the symbiotic relationships between microbial life and humans, about how the unique cyberinfrastructure resources for Big Data at UC San Diego will drive applications in the new frontier of microbiome research.

Dr. Rebecca Berman was recently recruited to UCSF to direct the internal medicine residency program, generally considered to be one of the nation's finest. Dr. Berman comes to UCSF from Harvard, where she directed the primary care residency program at Brigham & Womens Hospital. In the interview, Dr. Berman discusses her upbringing, her longstanding commitment to social justice and health equity, her approach to mentoring and career development, and her view of how medical training needs to evolve to meet the needs of our trainees and patients. Recorded on 11/26/2018.

Marion Nestle (NYU) and Laura Schmidt (UCSF) discuss nutrition policy and research, scientific conflicts of interest, the upcoming Dietary Guidelines, global food systems and more in this conversation about the food industry's influence on scientific research. Recorded on 02/07/2019.

Garrett Roll, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Connie Frank Transplant Center UCSF, and Sindhu Chandran, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Connie Frank Transplant Center, UCSF. Recorded on 05/17/2019.

A major ambition of artificial intelligence lies in translating patient data to successful therapies. Machine learning models face particular challenges in biomedicine, however, including handling of extreme data heterogeneity and lack of mechanistic insight into predictions. Trey Ideker, PhD argues for "visible" approaches that guide model structure with experimental biology.

Dr. Andi Tenner, Co-Director, UCSF WHO Collaborating Centre for
Emergency and Trauma Care, looks at emergency care systems needed to ensure care for the acutely ill and injured. Recorded on 03/30/2020.

All Asians and Pacific Islanders should be tested for the Hepatitis B virus (HBV)because they account for 90% of HBV-infected individuals in the United
States. Chronic hepatitis B may be a silent disease whichmakes testing even more important. Dr. Francis Yao, UCSF Liver surgeon, explores HBV, tests and treatments. Recorded on 03/04/2020.

Obesity is at the root of silent epidemics such as type 2 diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Laura Schmidt explores the causes and solutions, taking lessons from tobacco: reducing the availability of harmful substances reduces consumption, thereby reducing harms to health. She talks about the UCSF Healthy Beverage Initiative and the effects it has had on employee health. Recorded on 02/13/2020.

California's first Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris talks with Claire Brindis, UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, about her goals in this new position. The three key priorities as first surgeon general are health equity, early childhood, and reducing adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress. As a physician, champion and researcher she sees the connection among them and the resulting long-term negative outcomes. Recorded on 02/13/2020.

Infectious diseases have profound influences on the evolution of their host populations. In the case of humans, the host species has also shaped pathogen dynamics and virulence viaa multitude of factors from changes in social organization, group size, and exploitation of varied habitats and their animals and plant resources to agriculture, technology, rapid long-distance travel, medicine and global economic integration - which all continue to shape epidemics and the humanhost populations. This symposium will explore how infectious agents and humans have shaped each other over the eons.

Over the past two decades novel coronaviruses have spilled from the bat to the human population on three occasions. The first two breakouts in south China in 2003 and in Saudi Arabia in 2012 launched the SARS and MERS outbreaks, respectively. Both outbreaks were contained by aggressive case finding, contact tracing and quarantine activities. A third crossover of a novel coronavirus into the human population occurred in the fall of 2019. This event which is believed to have occurred around a wet market in Wuhan, China was unfortunately not efficiently contained and spread rapidly across China. Since its crossover events six months ago, the virus has infected over 4 million people and resulted in 300,000 deaths. This presentation by Dr. Chip Schooley, UC San Diego Professor of Medicine, focuses on the biology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of the SARS-2 coronavirus and containment efforts to date.

COVID-19 has caused feelings of uncertainty, anxiety, and even anger. What are effective tools to deal with your emotions during these difficult times? Shelli Kurth and Nicole Assisi will show you how to create space for self care for both you and your child. Learn how to be present as well as how to leverage movement to help your child engage in learning.

Human health is affected by environmental change. Those impacts are distributed unequally within and between populations and the disparity between those most responsible and those most affected by change. Dr. Thomas Newman describes how you can reduce your own environmental footprint by conserving energy, reducing travel, eating less meat, and offsetting carbon. But individual change alone will not be enough as greater change is necessary. Newman is Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology & Biostatistics and Pediatrics at UCSF and the Chair of San Francisco Bay Area Physicians for Social Responsibility Environmental Health Committee.

Throughout the US and around the world, extreme heat is on the rise. It's a trend that many of us have perceived even in our own lifetimes. We talk about how heat waves have gotten hotter, less bearable. Kristina Dahl, PhD Senior Climate Scientist, Union of Concerned Scientists, explains that extreme heat already presents serious dangers to our health and livelihoods. She looks at data and talks about the future. Recorded on 04/28/2020.

What is it like to give birth during a global pandemic? Know what to expect when you get to the hospital and learn how your care team will work to keep you and your baby safe and healthy.
