How to build a Human!

About this Event

Dr Emily Grossman investigates recent advances in the fields of cloning and regenerative medicine - from Dolly the sheep to 3-D printed livers - and discusses how stem cells are now being used to re-grow human body parts. She explores the recent advances in the use of this amazing technology to repair damaged tissues and to grow whole organs, and asks if in the future we could even grow a new heart? A brain? Cure paralysis? Combat baldness? Reverse infertility? Could we one day even grow a whole human?!
