Making Replacement Body Parts in the Lab

Organised by:

UCL

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Sometimes we may get so ill or injured that tissues and organs need replacing completely. Surgeons may try and do this by transplanting tissue from one person to another, but often there simply aren't enough replacement organs to go round. Scientists, like the speaker, are trying to find out ways to grow replacement body parts in the lab or to stimulate the body to make its own replacement tissue. Come and find out how they are trying to do this by using stem cells, drugs and biomaterials.
