Busting Myths about COVID-19 w/ Dr Dawn Bowdish

Today on Sickboy, the guys sit down with Dr. Dawn Bowdish, a Canadian immunologist who, according to Wikipedia (and our measly intern Lauren), is a professor in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. She is also a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Aging & Immunity. She is known for several discoveries including the immunomodulatory properties of the antimicrobial peptide LL-37, how MARCO signalling complex recognizes Mycobacterium tuberculosis, age-associated inflammation and its effects on clearing pneumococcal pneumonia and how the ageing gut microbiome drives age-associated inflammation…. basically, she knows a hell of a lot more than we do. This is why we asked her to chat with us about COVID-19! Check it out!
