On the trail of life


Where does life begin and how does it end? What do different scientific disciplines have to say on the subject? How is the work being done by researchers changing the way we view and relate to living beings? 

In this podcast, produced by EPFL’s College of Humanities, journalist Anne Laure Gannac explores the basic concepts of life through the prism of research being done at EPFL, the University of Lausanne and elsewhere.

Through these original, in-depth, philosophical conversations with scientists, we’re invited to grapple with the complexity of what defines a living being.
