Trailblazers Unveiled: Homage to Candace Pert’s Revolutionary Science

Featuring Pamela Ryckman

Join us on “Possibilities with Monique de Maio” for a riveting exploration into the life and legacy of Candace Pert, a trailblazer in neuropharmacology and psychology, as recounted by the Emmy-winning producer and writer, Pamela Ryckman.

Ryckman, known for her influential work including “Stiletto Network” and contributions to prestigious publications, brings us “Candace Pert: Genius, Greed, and Madness in the World of Science,” a compelling narrative that dives deep into the life of a woman whose research redefined our understanding of the mind-body connection.

Candace Pert’s journey is one of groundbreaking discovery and fierce determination, navigating the male-dominated scientific community with her research on peptide receptors. This episode not only celebrates Pert’s scientific achievements but also delves into her personal trials and tribulations, offering a nuanced portrayal of her life and work.

Through Ryckman’s eloquent storytelling, we learn about Pert’s significant contributions to understanding addiction, her pivotal role during the AIDS epidemic, and the lasting impact of her work on functional medicine and integrative health practices. However, it’s not just about science; it’s about the human story of triumph, struggle, and enlightenment, as Pert’s journey is a testament to the indomitable spirit of inquiry and determination.

Prepare to be inspired by these two remarkable women as we uncover the profound implications of Pert’s work and Ryckman’s dedication to bringing these stories to light. This episode is more than just a biography; it’s a tribute to those who dare to challenge the status quo and pave the way for future generations.
