Clarkson University Assistant Professor of Biology Cintia HongayOur bodies contain tens of trillions of cells of about 210 different types, yet it all started out from just one single cell. How is this miracle accomplished?

Join Hongay as she explains the basics of embryogenesis (the sum of the steps resulting in the generation of a whole organism) and introduces us to her interesting research on the subject.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
