How is your body built, and how does it work? Explore the inner workings of cells and organs in this presentaion. See how scientists capture time-lapse videos of embryo formation, from the process of developing a head-tail axis to how the heart starts to beat.

Shankar Srinivas is Professor of Developmental Biology in the Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford and Medical Fellow in Jesus College. The research in Shankar’s group focuses on understanding how the coordinated cell movements that shape the early embryo are controlled and integrated.
