Joint event with BioSoc. Note unusual time and venue!

Nuclear transfer to amphibian eggs was used some fifty years ago to demonstrate that almost all cells of the body have the same set of genes. This led, over the next few decades, to an increasing interest in the prospects of using nuclear reprogramming for drug testing and eventual cell replacement therapy. This talk will trace the history of these evolving ideas and prospects.

This talk is part of the Trinity College Science Society (TCSS) series.
