Ep96 | Beyond Mad Cow: Prion Diseases Explained Medicus

In this episode, we learn about prions and the neurodegenerative diseases they cause.  Join us as Michael Terranova explains how these rare infectious proteins impact patients and why the medical community needs to be aware of their effects. Michael Terranova earned his BS and MS degrees at UC San Diego, and he is currently a medical student at the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. A lifelong interest in neurology led Michael to research the neurobiology of substance use at the San Diego Veterans Affairs Healthcare System before researching rapidly progressive dementias at the UC San Francisco Memory and Aging Center. He is also an avid automotive enthusiast, having participated in the Society of Automotive Engineers International Collegiate Design Series and restored multiple classic cars with his family.
