1:25 Crowdfunding Science Research

Money for research into discovering a solution for increased antimicrobial resistance is coming from crowdfunding. Dr Siouxsie Wiles is leading the charge to highlight lack of funding to address the fact that we are running out of medicines to treat many of the microbes that cause disease in both animals and humans. Dr Siouxsie Wiles explains that increasingly the antibiotics we use to treat infections aren't working and there's not a lot of money being spent on turning this around.

2:10 Helping the blind 'see' art 

The Museums Aotearoa Conference starts today in Palmerston North. And the theme of this year's event is accessibility. Bruce Roberts has been guiding tours for visually impaired people for more than 30 years. In his current job, he also helps blind people 'see' paintings at Te Papa. The museum has tours that are a combination of touch and audio description, for the visually impaired, the hearing impaired and for aphasic people, who find it difficult to communicate either through brain injury or stroke.

2:30 Monday Expert - Jerusha Bennett on Parasites

A parasite is an organism that lives in another organism, called the host, and often harms it. It is dependent on its host for survival - it has to be in the host to live, grow and multiply. A parasite cannot live independently.

Our Monday expert knows all about these organisms. Jerusha Bennett is currently doing her MSc in Ecology at Otago University, focusing on parasite transmission inside certain species of fish.

3:10 Preventing or delaying Alzheimer's Disease

When it comes to Alzheimer's disease, our DNA is not our destiny. That's the message of best selling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova. Her originally self published book, Still Alice, became an Oscar winning film.

Lisa Genova says there are so many factors within our control that can help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's, like sleep, cardiovascular health and exercise.

She shares her insights with us on both science of neurological disorders and the human impacts.
