The British Science Association's Oxford SciBar is pleased to present 'Worming around for the meaning of life.'

Welcome to the tiny but well-ordered world of the nematode C. elegans. Prof Alison Woollard (University of Oxford, 2013 Royal Institution Christmas Lecturer) is a “worm-person” - one who seeks answers to some of Life’s most fascinating questions using this remarkable “model” organism that has so much to teach us about ourselves. How do we develop from egg to adult? How do our cells know what to do, and why must some of them die? How and why do we age? Is there no limit to what you can study using “the Worm”? Come along to find out!
