The Software of Cell Signaling: Michael Levin Researches How Cells Build Anatomies

Previous Next

Curious about how to make a two-headed flatworm? Michael Levin’s lab has done just that. This podcast explores exciting regenerative medicine achievable in our lifetime. Listen in to hear how Professor Michael Levin has found a way to manipulate biological molecules, altering electrical triggers in cells to direct different anatomical constructions.

He discusses

• How he conceives of cellular and biological agency in a way that direct his study for the best possible outcome,

• What types of molecular mechanisms his work engages with to redirect information structures and mapping so that cells make a different anatomical structure, and

• How this work, including regenerating limbs in frogs, will apply to human limb regeneration.
