What is a scientific model and what is it good for? As a prelude to talking about dose-response models on Risk Bites, this week's video is a primer on models -- what they are, and why they are useful.
This is part of a series of Risk Bites videos that tackle dose response and response models. Check out the complete series:

Okay so this has nothing to do with risk. Or science (sort of). But I couldn't resist making it!
I love Thanksgiving. This has to be one of the best holidays, period. Negligible commercialization, great food, and a chance to relax, catch up with family and friends, and contemplate everything you
A gene drive is a radical new way of re-engineering the genetic makeup of an entire species - including harmful insects like the mosquito. But as the technology steams head, fueled by powerful gene editing techniques coming out of synthetic biology like CRISPR Cas9, what are the risks, and how can w
Advanced brain computer interfaces like the one being developed by Elon Musk’s Neuralink have the potential to transform our lives for the better. But they also come with complex ethical challenges.
In this collaboration with Elma Hajric, Risk Bites dives into some of ethical risks and responsible
