The Quest to Discover How Life Works, Mar 23

The natural world is regulated at the microscopic and macroscopic levels: rules regulate every molecule in our bodies, and rules regulate every creature in the wild. But how is mankind using — and even altering — these rules? Award-winning biologist Sean Carroll will explain the remarkable similarity of the rules that regulate life at such different size levels. He will explain how our deep understanding leads to life-saving medicines, and how the time has come to use life’s rules (the “Serengeti Rules”) to heal our ailing planet.
