Details About the talk

O moderno laboratório de Anthony Atala cultiva órgãos humanos, desde músculos a vasos sanguíneos, bexigas e outros. No TEDMED ele mostra-nos algumas imagens dos seus engenheiros de biologia, a trabalharem com algumas gerigonças que parecem ficção científica, incluindo um reator biológico parecido com um forno (pré-aquecer a 37ºC) e uma máquina que "imprime" tecido humano.

Anthony Atala asks, "Can we grow organs instead of transplanting them?" His lab at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine is doing just that — engineering over 30 tissues and whole organs.
