What can worms teach us about immortality? How does one become the Godfather? And where does Biogen go from here?
We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. Our colleague Megan Molteni joins us to explain the scientific discoveries, rampant hype, and Silicon Valley billions behind the burgeoning field of longevity research. Then, we discuss the remarkable career of Stelios Papadopoulos, the venerated Godfather of biotech who faces the daunting task of saving Biogen.
For more on what we cover, here’s the report on longevity research; here’s the story on Papadopoulos; here’s where you can find episodes of Color Code; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
