After Dark: Cells to Self

c2sHow are you shaped by the genes you’re born with, and by your environment? How do your body's trillions of cells work together to create a human self? At our brand-new exhibit collection, Cells to Self, you can use microscopes, digital models, and firsthand interactions with cells to explore how cells move, divide, communicate, and respond to their surroundings from the environmental awareness of bacteria to human heart cells beating in response to electricity. Come get a closer look and see what you’re made of. *
