Science in the Mall, Y’all is a show about the Bioscience Incubator and the innovations of our member companies. This isn’t a deep dive into the science itself, it is instead a podcast exploring the reasons behind these companies’ existence. From making sure your queso is safe to eat, to figuring out how to slowly release drugs into the system to help fight opioid addictions, these startups are seeking answers to some of today’s most complex questions. Science in the Mall, Y’all is a podcast that seeks to learn about the “Why” in order to understand more about the “How”.
