37 trillion cells make a person, yet they cannot be seen by X-Rays and MRI scans. Mark Lythgoe and Tammy Kalber will make the invisible visible with a revolutionary new technology. Listen to the sound of cells and see them using glowing genes from fireflies, as they test the boundaries of what’s possible. Lighting up the cells live on stage, they’ll explore how this new way of seeing will change treatments for diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Watch as they shed light on the brain and body before you very eyes in a new revolution of optical imaging.
