Hello friends and welcome to the Beauty and the Biotech Beast, an IGTV/Podcast series. My name is Paige and I am a doctoral student studying cancer biology. This series seeks to showcase the beauty of science by taming it's complexity! Having a broad range of interests has given me a passion for discussing my research, and science in general, in an approachable way regardless of if you are in STEM or not! I hope to make science more approachable as well as provide some tips to those interested in STEM careers! Enough of an intro, let's get into taming this Beast shall we??

In a world full of social media and Facetune, Botox is a hot topic. But does anyone know how this treatment really works? Inspired by Taylor Woods who shared her story with Botox treatment for migraine headaches, I decided to break down the science of this treatment. I also discuss it's variety of applications, outside of just getting rid of wrinkles!! Coincidentally, Botox is one of my FAVORITE scientific discovery stories as it was discovered truly serendipitously!!

*TRIGGER WARNING*: This episode discusses topics related to weight loss, obesity and dieting.

In this week's episode, we dive in to the genetics of weight. Obviously, weight loss and gain are heavily impacted by our lifestyle, but there are some genetic markers that make certain individuals predisposed to conditions such as obesity and weight gain. I discuss some of the genes related to weight loss and what these genetic markers could help doctors treat patients suffering from obesity in the future.

I had the incredible honor of recording a collaborative podcast with my favorite YouTuber Taylor Woods on her podcast Don't Get It Twisted! In our collaborative episode, we talked about some of the science behind fitness topics like supplements, intermittent fasting and lemon water to boost your metabolism! BUT we had a few topics we did not get to UNTWIST (if you will), so I continue the conversation in this week's episode, by TAMING some fitness myths related to "runner's high", lactic acid build up, the importance of rest days, and why bananas help with cramping.
