Apoptosis Explained Simply and Why It Matters in Dog Cancer | Amanda Kin, M.S.

Biology professor Amanda Kin explains apoptosis as if it’s an episode of Law & Order: SVU. Is the cell dying by accident, suicide, or murder?


Enter the fascinating world of cell death, where nosy neighbors can tell each other to “die, already” … and cells can wake up one day and realize there’s something very, very wrong.

Also learn how cancer manipulates the conscientious cells to make them blissfully unaware of their own wrongdoing … or holds them hostage while they desperately, desperately try to do the right thing and kill themselves for the good of everyone.

It’s a glimpse into a world where cells seem sentient, and one could almost start to believe in miracles.
