"All science is either physics or stamp collecting," said Lord Rutherford, the nuclear physicist. 

A little harsh, perhaps, but Raghu Parthasarathy can probably relate.  Parthasarathy is a physicist at the University of Oregon whose work crosses over into biology, chemistry and neuroscience. 

His work includes researching the microbiome of the gut, which influences a person's overall health.  He is our guest in this month's edition of cUriOus: Where Research Meets Radio.  You can read more about his research on his blog, The Eighteenth Elephant.
