Miguel A. Esteban

Lecture: "The Multidirectionality of Life"

One of the shocking facts about the world we learn from the first year of primary school is that living things are born, reproduce and die in regular patterns. This symphony has repeated in an unquantifiable manner from generation to generation since the origin and diversification of life. Recent discoveries of stem cell function and cell reprogramming are, however, telling us that this course does not have a unique direction. To understand the multidirectional instability of life we are using new spatiotemporal omics technologies. In the future, perhaps textbooks will have to be revised and instead say that living things are engineered, repaired, and may not need to die.

The Lecture is hosted by Ludovic Vallier (W3 Einstein Strategic Professorship for Stem Cells in Regenerative Therapies).
