Sudden Death: A Tale of Cell Suicide

Presented by Marshall Thomas

In this seminar, Harvard graduate student Marshall Thomas will delve into the amazing natural phenomenon of apoptosis – programmed cell death. Though it sounds scary, apoptosis is critical for keeping us healthy by removing old and damaged cells and staving off cancer. Surprisingly, studying apoptosis can also tell us something about how life works. Marshall will wrap up by sharing some of his own research on programmed cell death.
