Episode 27 – Idioms of Normality hosted by Dr. Paul H. Mason
Challenging Normality with Yensi Alejandra Flores Bueso.
In this episode of Idioms of Normality, Paul speaks with Yensi Flores Bueso, a synthetic biologist studying cancer at the University College Cork, Ireland.
Yensi discusses normality in the laboratory and its cultural life outside the laboratory. Normal is a term used often in experimental science but has several shortcomings. In wider society, these shortcomings have become amplified and normality is a concept that deserves to be challenged in order to lead an authentic life.
