Guests: Dario Mizrachi, PhD, Professor of Physiology and Developmental Biology, Brigham Young University; Mike Alder, Technology Transfer Office, Brigham Young University Our bodies are made up of cells. Have you ever thought about how that works, exactly? Zoom out a bit from the individual cell and how exactly do they congregate to create a solid tissue or an organ? What holds the cells together in their structure? BYU professor Dario Mizrachi has figured out how to slip molecules between cells that stuck together like super-tight Velcro, which could be a big breakthrough in delivering certain types of medicine.
