We will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.

SUMMARY

How does life begin? What drives a newly fertilized egg to keep dividing and growing until it becomes 40 trillion cells, a greater number than stars in the galaxy?

Discover how early life repairs and organises itself, what this means for the future of pregnancy, and how we might solve IVF disorders and prevent miscarriages.

Join Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz as she discusses her research into the previously unknown ability for embryos to correct abnormalities at an early stage of development.

SPEAKER:

Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz carried out her Ph.D. at the University of Warsaw, Poland, under supervision of Andrzej Tarkowski. She came to Cambridge in 1995 to join Martin Evans group with the long-term aim of studying the mechanisms of regulative nature of development and spatial patterning in the mouse embryo. In 1997 she was awarded a Senior Research Fellowship from the Lister Institute to start her independent group at the Wellcome Trust/Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute in Cambridge. In 2001 she became a Wellcome Senior Research Fellow. In 2010, she became a Professor of Mammalian Development and Stem Cell Biology. In 1993 she received a Promising Young Scientist Prize from Foundation for Polish Science, in 2001, Young Investigator Award from EMBO, in 2007 she was elected to EMBO membership and in 2013 she became Fellow of British Academy of Medical Science.

Copied of her book 'The dance of life' are avaiable from amazon and all good retailers.
