Sound Science with Dr Yewande Pearse: Psychedelics in Science and Music

Saturday, October 6 2018
08:00 PM - 09:00 PM


Born and bred in North London, Dr Yewande Pearse completed her PhD in Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry, London in 2016. She is now based in Los Angeles, where she works as a Research Fellow, developing a stem cell therapy treatment for a rare childhood brain disease. Outside of the lab, Yewande is a writer for Massive Science – an online science media platform, and a TEDMED Research Scholar for this year’s Stage Programme.

Born of a mutual love of science and music, Yewande believes that science is for everyone. Sound Science is a monthly podcast about the science stories that affect our lives and in some way relate to music. With the help of guest experts in the field and a carefully selected sound track curated to the theme of the scientific topic, Yewande brings you stories that will make you hear science differently.
