Science Under the Dome - Journey to the Center of the Embryo

CU Boulder students are admitted FREE with valid BuffOne card. 

The most universal human experience is the journey from embryo to human being. While we have all undergone this transformation from one cell to trillions of cells, we rarely stop to engage in the wonder of how this process unfolds. Embryonic development is a marvel, and in fact, it is critical to several societal debates, including climate change, racism, and abortion. How do rising temperatures challenge the embryo’s development? What causes the mortality rate to be higher for black infants than for white infants? Can biology tell us if an embryo has personhood? However, the biology of how the embryo develops is often excluded from the conversation while political and ideological perspectives take center stage. Join us in diving deep into the womb to discover what we know about the embryonic journey, and what questions remain in order to understand the embryo’s impact on society.
