Professor David Vaux

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

"Death of a Cell – Means, Motive, Opportunity"

A human has about a million billion cells.  Every second, since the day we were born, over a million cells divide in two. To maintain the correct number of cells, every second another million of our cells trigger an in-built self-destruct process to kill themselves. In this talk, Professor Vaux will describe the nature of this cell death mechanism, how it works, how this was determined, what happens if it goes wrong, and how this knowledge is being used to make new medicines.
David Vaux is Deputy Director of The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI). He graduated in medicine from the University of Melbourne in 1984, did a PhD at WEHI, and then a post-doc at Stanford, before returning to Australia in 1993.
