Awesome new video clips posted by NIH director Francis Collins on his NIH Director’s Blog. Check out the blog and the videos!
To keep everyone energized during the hot, hazy days of summer, I’ve decided to start a new series called Cool Videos. This virtual mini-film fest will feature a variety of videos—some even produced by researchers themselves—in which biomedical science plays a starring role.
Today’s feature (and my personal favorite) comes from the lab of Howard Weiner at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Set to the “Cups Song” from the movie “Pitch Perfect,” this video puts a human face on Alzheimer’s disease and features a few of the many researchers who are working so hard to find ways of treating and preventing this devastating brain disorder.
