Yale Science Communication Presents A Game of Cellular Communication: How Miscommunication Causes Disease

April 27, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Zoom Videoconference

Please join us for this live webinar on Tuesday, April 27th at 7:00 pm EST


Ever wonder why we get sick? The cells in our body constantly communicate with each other through a network of ‘telephone calls’ to precisely maintain the delicate balance of our health. But what happens when this information is lost in translation between cells? Join us this April as three Yale scientists discuss how even a slight miscommunication in this game of ‘CELLular telephone’ can lead to various diseases.

Yale Science Communication is an organization of graduate students and postdoctoral individuals passionate about science communication, education, and advocacy. They deliver talks on current topics in science, ranging from the microbiome to the feasibility of a real-life Jurassic Park. Their goal is to make science fun and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. and provide people with a better understanding of the science underpinning many of the complex issues in the news every day.
