Wednesday March 18th @ 7pm: Oxford SciBar - Worming around for the meaning of life with Prof Alison Woollard
Welcome to the tiny but well-ordered world of the nematode C. elegans. Professor Alison Woollard of the University of Oxford and presenter of the 2013 Royal Institution Christmas Lectures is a "worm person" - one who seeks answers to some of Life's most fascinating questions using this remarkable "model" organism that has so much to teach us about ourselves. How do we develop from egg to adult? How do our cells know what to do and why must some of them die? How and why do we age? Is there no limit to what you can study using "the worm"? Come along to the Blue Room upstairs at St.Aldates Tavern on Wednesday March 18th at 7pm to find out!
