Program Description

The cell is the basic building block of life -- and sometimes the cauldron of death. Although some of its deepest secrets remain out of reach, scientists are now decoding many of the communications systems that regulate the life of a cell. The process is fascinating pure research; the result is often an advance in the war against disease. Featured scientists: Wilfred Denetclaw, Jr., Ph.D., post doctoral fellow, Department of Anatomy and Cardiovascular Research Institute, University of California, San Francisco; Gladys Escalona de Motta, Ph.D., professor and dean, College of Natural Sciences, University of Puerto Rico; George Langford, Ph.D., E.E. Just Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, Dartmouth College. •Episode producer: Trudi Brown
