Event Details

This summer UCL's Lunch Hour Lectures go 'on tour' to The Guardian for a short series marking the centenary of the start of World War One.

Reconstructing Broken Bodies: from industrial warfare to industrial engineered tissues

Prof Robert Brown, UCL Surgical Science & Mr Colin Hopper, UCL Eastman Dental Institute

Trench warfare protected combatants from many injuries, but left the head exposed, producing a massive demans for experimental facial reconstructive surgery. WW1 is acknowledged as the first 'industrial scale' war, but it has taken a century to stumble upon the concept of industrial scale tissue production. This very 21st century idea can be traced back to WW1 and the clinical pressures produced by industrial scale, non-lethal trauma.
