Growing biological tissue in the lab is no longer a sci-fi dream. It’s helping to unravel the mysteries of how our bodies develop and making regenerative medicine and the production of living materials a realistic option.
In this special Crick Chat James Briscoe, a scientist from the Francis Crick Institute, and Amy Congdon, a designer from Central Saint Martins, will discuss how their multidisciplinary approaches to tissue engineering are providing new insights and what the implications of this emerging field might be.
Crick Chats are relaxed and friendly evening events that bring you face-to-face with researchers working at the Francis Crick Institute and our partner organisations.
Hear about their work, ask a burning question, or just enjoy a chat; Crick Chats are free and open to all. No knowledge of science is required.
Drinks and snacks will be available at the bar.
When & Where
The Francis Crick Institute
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the scientific mechanisms of living things. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to find new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent illness such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.
By bringing together scientists from many disciplines, the Crick will have the scale, vision and expertise to tackle the most challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease.
The Francis Crick Institute was founded by six of the UK's most successful scientific and academic organisations - the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the Wellcome Trust, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King's College London.
