Petri-dishes filled with beating hearts and firing neurons - it's the stuff of science fiction!
Hear the real story from a panel of scientists currently growing 'miniature organs'. How is it done? And why are these technologies so important for biomedical research?
This interactive panel discussion will be followed by wine, nibbles and a chance to informally chat with researchers.
This event is co-hosted by four leading bio-medical research institutes: Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute; Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute; Wellcome Trust / Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute; and the Babraham Institute.
