Why can people eat the same diet or take the same medicine and have different outcomes? In this episode of Blue Sky Science, Danielle Lohman, a graduate student in biochemistry at UW-Madison, answers that question posed by Suzanne Shain, a UW-Madison alumna.

Blue Sky Science is a collaboration of the Wisconsin State Journal and the Morgridge Institute for Research. Scientific questions are posed by visitors to Science Saturdays, a monthly series at the Discovery Building that features interactive exploration stations centered around a particular topic. The Blue Sky Science team then sets out to find an expert to answer the questions.
