Random Walk 23: ComSciConCan #9 with Kathryn Vaillancourt


Kathryn is back to talk ComSciConCAN2020! We talk about our take-aways from the 2020 edition of ComSciConCAN, a grad-student focused conference on science communication!  

Remember, we have a big write-up about the conference available for free at https://www.patreon.com/scican  

Kathryn Vaillancourt is a PhD candidate at McGill University studying how addiction can change the way traits are passed down, without having to alter the person’s genetic code. It’s a fascinating (and relatively new) area of research called “epigenetics”.
