Tapeworms are notorious survivors that thrive due to their enormous capacity to grow. regenerate, and reproduce at prolific rates. These physiological feats are driven by stem cells but the molecular mechanisms that regulate them have remained mysterious. The difficulty of studying tapeworms in the lab is largely driven by the complex multi-host life cycles of many pathologically significant tapeworm species and a dearth of tools. Dr. Rozario will address how her lab has made the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and excellent model for understanding how stem cells regulate the regenerative capacity of tapeworms.

Starting March 15: Caryl Churchill's 'Vinegar Tom,' at City Repertory Theatre, 160 Cypress Point Parkway (City Marketplace, Suite B207), Palm Coast, 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday. $15-$30. Book tickets here. From Director John Sbordone's program notes: Caryl Churchill’s "Vinegar Tom," written in collaboration with the Monstrous Regiment Theatre Company, uses the hunt for witches in the 17th century, as stool to investigate the subjugation of women in a male dominated society. The lessons of the past, though more blatant than the present, are reflected in many aspects of our own society. Churchill, a leading feminist writer in Britain for over 50 years, explores the free spirited Alice, the subservient Susan, the caged in Betty, the destitute Joan and the ever helpful Ellen in the context of their repressive environment. She uses modern techniques such as the episodic scene to convey the pervasiveness of the subjugation without absorbing the audience in emotional crisis. She asks us to observe the behaviors without getting lost in their melodrama. One technique establishes these goals graphically. The songs are intended to covey a contemporary commentary on the behavior of the past. CRT is proud to present this daring exploration and thankful to Benjamin Beck for composing the compelling music to accompany our efforts.
