Session

The Dance of Life

Roger Highfield and Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz in conversation

A compelling conversation on how a few tiny cells become the fantastically complex whole that is a fully formed human. Roger Highfield, Science Director of the Science Museum Group and Magdalena Zernicka Goetz, Caltech and University of Cambridge developmental biologist, take us through a moving celebration of the balletic beauty of life's beginnings, as they discuss their co-authored and critically-acclaimed work, ‘The Dance of Life - Symmetry, Cells, and How We Become Human’.
