What is the course about?
In this lecture Max Kerr Winter will discuss various ways in which physics and biology come together. He will focus on his work studying how forces are distributed and organised in the early mouse embryo, in order for the embryo to grow into the correct shape. He will give a broad explanation, aimed at a general audience, of the insights this research can give us into the development of human embryos.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
This is a general interest course for people interested in new areas of scientific research.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Illustrated lecture followed by questions and discussion.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
Look out for further Science guest lectures in our programme.
