Details About the talk

O cirurgião Anthony Atala demonstra um experimento em fase inicial que poderia resolver o problema de doadores de órgãos no futuro: uma impressora 3D que usa células vivas para produzir um rim capaz de ser transplantado. Utilizando tecnologia similar, o jovem paciente do Dr. Atala, Luke Massella, recebeu uma bexiga artificial dez anos atrás; nós o conhecemos no palco.
