Understanding autophagy through art

Michigan's World Class - Autophagy: Understanding Science through Artistic Expression

A unique artistic collaboration among a cell biologist, composer, choreographer and scientific illustrator helps convey the process of autophagy, in which cells break down and dispose of that which no longer is needed while recycling essential parts worth keeping. The project was the brainchild of Dan Klionsky, Arthur G. Ruthven Professor of Life Sciences. Watch a longer documentary on the autophagy collaboration on "Detroit Performs," at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on WTVS Detroit Public TV.
