Re-Engineering Life: Tissue Engineering in Health and the Environment
- Starts: 4:00 pm on Wednesday, November 28, 2018
- Ends: 6:00 pm on Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Hosted by Thomas Bifano, Professor, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Materials Science & Engineering, ENG; and Director, Photonics Center; and Christopher Chen, Professor, Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering, ENG Tissue engineering aims to restore, maintain, and improve damaged tissues or whole organs. BU researchers are working to understand the interactions between cells and their surroundings, combining emerging and traditional technologies to identify cell function and guide cell and tissue growth. Attend this Research on Tap to learn more about BU’s research in engineering artificial tissues and building hybrid biological/artificial devices for medical and other applications.
