Description

When you think of venomous animals, you imagine snakes, spiders, or scorpions - not snails. In this SciCafe, Mandë Holford, a research associate at the Museum and Associate Professor of chemical biology at Hunter College, discusses her research on predatory marine snails, the toxins they produce, and how those toxins are being used in the search for new medicines for pain and cancer.

This SciCafe took place at the Museum on May 6, 2016. To learn about upcoming SciCafe events, visit amnh.org/scicafe. To listen to the full lecture, download the podcast: http://www.amnh.org/explore/news-blogs/podcasts/scicafe-mollusks-to-medicine
