Ctrl+C: Cell copies in growth, regeneration, and cancer

You grew from a single cell to the complex organism reading this event description. And you are not alone. Most organisms grow through the process of cell division. As adults, cell division helps maintain and heal our bodies. Uncontrolled cell disvision, however leads to cancer. In this Art in the Lab, supported by the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB); we invite you to draw to explore one of the basic moves of the cell using St. Francis College's extensive collection of teaching slides and models. For our lab activity we will be doing a quick and easy cell stain to examine normal and cancer cell morphology under a microscope. Special guest TBA. As always, basic art supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your own. FREE but RSVP to save your place at the microscope.

Thanks to the American Society for Cell Biology COMPASS fund for supporting this event.
