"Tissue Engineering: The Key to Eternal Life?" is the topic of a discussion by Clarkson University Professor of Biophysics Gabor Forgacs at the next Science Cafe at La Casbah, 6 Elm Street in Potsdam, on Wednesday, February 2, at 7:15 p.m.
In the not-too-distant future, you will simply walk into a specialized clinic, shed your dysfunctional kidney, or liver, and walk out with a made-to-measure new one. Sounds like fiction? Maybe so, but maybe not.
Join Forgacs as he explains and discusses this new exciting technology, and judge for yourself whether it is truly just around the corner.
Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
