Secret Science Club
Secret Science Club
Our bodies - and the bodies of all animals - are fascinating and complex. The human body is made of over 35 trillion cells, and there are hundreds of different types: Brain cells, Blood cells. Muscle cells. The list goes on. All are essential to our living, breathing, functioning selves. But among those cells, there is only one kind that is considered "immortal:" the germ cells. Formed in the embryo, these all-powerful cells produce the eggs and sperm that carry our DNA, and allow us to keep on grooving, generation after generation.



At the next Secret Science Club, developmental biologist Ruth Lehmann explores the mysterious lives of cells and their role in reproduction. She asks:



--What's up in the embryo? How and when do germ cells form?

--In what ways are these "immortal" cells radically different from other cells in the body?

--How do germ cells get romanced into making eggs and sperm? Is there a matchmaking molecule?
