Movie Night: Keeping the Faith

Latest Advances in Cell Science 

Thursday, January 25 at 10:30 AM at Temple De Hirsch Sinai (Bellevue Campus)

As humans, our lives begin as a single cell, growing to 50 trillion cells in adulthood. Recent advances have yielded remarkable insights into how many of the individual pieces of cellular machinery function. But understanding how they work together to produce a living cell requires an entirely different approach. Rick Horwitz, a world renown expert in cell biology and biophysics, will share this cutting edge area of research.
