Alexis Carrel and the immortal chicken heart

Play
Read more
Philip Ball tells the story of Alexis Carrel, the French surgeon who worked to preserve life outside the body and create an immortal chicken heart in a dish. His quest was to renew ageing flesh, repair and rebuild our bodies and keep them healthy far beyond the usual human lifespan. In the early twentieth century his science was pioneering but his mission to achieve eternal life was underpinned by a dark and terrifying agenda. Carrel was a racist who advocated eugenics to preserve the superior civilisation of the West.

Philip Ball discusses the history and cultural impact of the tissue culture techniques developed by Carrel with social historian Professor Hannah Landecker of the University of California at Los Angeles. And he finds out about the legacy of Carrel's research from Dr Madeline Lancaster of Cambridge University, one of the pioneers of the growth of brain organoids from stem cells; small clusters of neurons and other cells, rather like mini organs no bigger than a dried pea.

Wir springen in dieser Folge in die 30er Jahre des 20. Jahrhunderts und beschäftigen uns mit etwas Medizin- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte. Protagonisten der Geschichte sind der Nobelpreisträger Alexis und Carrel und – überraschenderweise – der Flugpionier Charles Lindbergh. Beide sind sie von einem Traum beseelt: den Menschen unsterblich zu machen. Wie sie das erreichen wollen und welche Wege sie bereit sind dafür zu beschreiten besprechen wir in dieser Folge.

Die vorwiegend hierfür verwendete Literatur ist das Buch “The Immortalists” von David M. Friedmann.

Lindbergh und Carrel, wie sie auf dem Cover von TIME erschienen, gibt’s hier zu sehen.

Lindberghs Perfusionspumpe kann man sich etwas genauer hier ansehen.

Das Episodenbild zeigt Lindbergh und Calvin Coolidge, Präsident zum Zeitpunkt des Atlantikfluges, der Lindbergh über Nacht zum Star machte.
