In this episode we take a look behind Behind the Bench, and turn the tables to interview the interviewers. Editor-in-Chief Dr. Irv Zucker (University of Nebraska Medical Center) talks with Dr. Lisandra de Castro Bras (East Carolina University) and Dr. Jonathan Kirk (Loyola University Chicago), our Behind the Bench podcast hosts. How did they both get started in science? What is their best advice to trainees launching their own careers in physiology? And how did this whole “Behind the Bench” podcast come about in the first place? So many questions. Let’s dive in.
