Dr Shane, Dr Jen and Chris KP bring you stories about new research into taking The Pill during puberty and potential links with depression, and new theories of the shape of the T-Rex skull.

The team interview Khashayar Khoshmanesh, PhD, and Peter Thurgood, from the Mechanobiology & Microfluidics Research Group in the School of Engineering at RMIT University, whose group is developing organ-on-chip systems for studying diseases.

They also chat with Dr Ludovic Dumée and Marie Enfrin from Deakin University, about research into how plastic in our waste streams is breaking down into tiny particles and causing potentially catastrophic consequences for our aquatic systems and human health.

Their final guest is Professor Mariapia Degli-Esposti from the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, which recently won a Eureka Prize, for a discovery that will help people fight off common infections that are not dangerous to healthy people - but deadly to people who have organ transplants.
