The Best Of Our Knowledge #1151

Over a century ago, a scientist set up one of the first microbiology labs in the United States.  Today, that lab is called the National Institutes of Health. Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll learn the history of the NIH on it’s 125th birthday.

We’ll also listen in as students in Pennsylvania protest budget cuts to education...and we’ll talk to the author of a new children’s book with Goldilocks and three dinosaurs.

We’ll also spend an Academic Minute with some Neanderthals trying to act smart.
