While the idea of engineering human organs may sound like science fiction, researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine were the first in the world to build replacement body parts in the lab that have been implanted in humans. Almeida-Porada will explain and demonstrate some of the processes and discuss the institute’s latest projects.
The event is part of the N.C. Science Festival. Admission to the talk is included in the SciWorks entrance fees.
