No More Microscopes. How close are we to glassless pathology?

Franklin.ai recommends…

This month’s podcast recommendation is from Vanessa Cheung, Product Manager at Franklin.ai:

“In this episode, Dr. Zuraw interviews Dr. Richard Levenson, who has a background in anatomical pathology and extensive experience in digital pathology. Digital pathology workflows today require scanning glass slides to be visualised on a screen. Dr Levenson discusses the possibility of a glassless process to further improve efficiency to deliver timely results to patients. I can’t wait to see the validation work Dr Levenson and his research team will produce in the future and how this can evolve digital pathology.”

This Medical Life: The Double Helix Structure of DNA | Finding Franklin

Franklin.ai recommends…

Each month we feature a podcast recommendation from our team. This months’ comes from pathologist Dr Fiona Maclean:

“Dr Travis Brown presents a podcast series “This Medical Life” in which he aims to present the stories of medicine by relating accounts of the pursuit of knowledge of diseases from ancient times to the present day. In this episode he interviews Prof Nathaniel Comfort, the Professor of the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University, who discusses the discovery of the structure of the double helix. This discovery in the 1950s has been described as the most significant biological accomplishment of the 20th century. One of the main contributors to this discovery was Rosalind Franklin and this podcast sets the record straight concerning her contribution to the solution of the structure. The key take aways are:

  1. The importance of getting history right
  2. Recognising unrecognised voices in science
  3. An illustration of how difficult it is to think historically
