Imperial Podcast: Sound of silence, molecular malaria map and mobile medics


Listening to silence: Imperial alumnus Ed Prosser talks about his audio art in the latest edition of the Podcast.

Dr Jake Baum discusses how a molecular map of the malaria parasite could help combat drug resistance.

And we hear from Business School students who have developed mobile technology that could bring more medical care to people in Uganda.

The podcast is presented by Gareth Mitchell, a lecturer on Imperial's Science Communication MSc course and the presenter of Click Radio on the BBC World Service, with contributions from our roaming reporters from the Research Communications team.
