If you’ve ever wondered how lab research transforms into life-changing, real-world products, you won’t want to miss this live webcast by the University of Toronto biomedical engineer Molly Shoichet next Wednesday at 7pm ET (Thursday 11am AEDT).
Brought to you by the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada, Shoichet explores the potential of regenerative medicine to move beyond treating disease to actually stopping and reversing it.
Exploring three case studies – focusing on cancer, blindness and stroke – Shoichet unravels the multidisciplinary innovations that can move regenerative medicine out of the lab and into our lives.
