Description

This lecture will explore the beginnings of human life from the moment of conception to the blastocyst implantation into the uterine wall. Does life begin at conception? If we are programmed to age and die, when does the dying process begin? While there is a continued trend of increasing life expectancy, why are there genetic limits to human capabilities to go on living? Voltaire will explore these questions from a broad, multidisciplinary perspective.
