Science Happens! is a regular video series anchored by award-winning author Carl Zimmer and produced by STAT senior video editor Matthew Orr. Each month, Carl takes viewers inside a lab where some of today’s most promising research is taking place. The goal is to make science digestible for a general audience — and to convey in a visual medium the fascinating work being carried out.
