In this episode we take a look at the life cycle of a cell, and a particular state called “quiescence,” which may hold the key to developments in cancer research. Dong sits down with Hilary Coller, a leading molecular biologist at Princeton University, to discuss her work.
Sunday at 12:00 pm EST, join News Director Nikki Leon for a conversation with filmmaker Damien Chazelle, whose debut picture—Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench—is being featured at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. Listen to the promo here.
Then, at 12:30 pm EST Sophie Jin and Yihe Dong take a look at the latest in cell research. Jin explains how scientists are investigating “quiescence,” a specific state in the life cycle of the cell. Dong speaks with Princeton biologist Hilary Coller, a leader in the study of quiescence, about how her work may, among other things, be applied to cancer research.
