Precise Mechanics of Cell Division: To divide, or not to divide
5:00 pm

How does a cell know exactly where to divide? How does it find its precise middle? And what are the various paradigms of division that exist?

The beauty of science lies as much in the scientific discovery as in the question!

The latest estimate seems to say that there are 37.2 trillion cells in our body. Imagine this - each one knows how to divide exactly down the middle, with utter precision. And this is true across organisms and systems. So while each of us must have learned something about cell division in school, it remains an open area of enquiry as we seek to understand the biophysics that drive cell division.

We are delighted to invite Mithilesh Mishra - biophysicist and professor - to Mumbai Local, to take us through the exquisitely beautiful world of cells and the even smaller nano-machines that drive their division. He will share with us how research happens in this area, the discoveries about division that have been made, and the open questions that are still driving research.

Look forward to an evening of deep diving into the fascinating, complex and precise micro-world of cells. We will learn something about the nature and process of cell-division. As importantly, we will journey a little bit with the process of scientific enquiry and discovery, and share in the wonder that drives this process.

See you on Sunday, 13th August, 5:30 pm at Bhau Daji Lad Museum. And in keeping with the people-driven nature of Mumbai Local, do please send this email on to at least 5 of your friends who would be interested - the more the merrier!

The Natural Streets for Performing Arts (NSPA) is a non-profit initiative to revive a culture of public performances and support the livelihoods of artists. Launched in October 2012, NSPA hosts musical performances for a total of 37 hours every week across 6 major railway stations on the Western and Central Rail Networks, and the Horniman Circle Gardens at Fort, Mumbai.

NSPA seeks to reclaim public spaces for the arts encouraging greater interaction between artists and the community, creating vibrant spaces of cultural interaction and energising the very city and its people with greater art consciousness. They work towards securing the livelihoods of independent artists across diverse art forms, thus, enabling them to follow their passion and take their art to new and larger audiences.
