A SCIENCE ON SCREEN PRESENTATION: Can You 3D Print a Person? The Science of Cell Development and Tissue Printing.

Is it possible to 3D print a human? Like many things in science the answer isn't yes or no. It's somewhere in between. PLU Professor Lathiena Nervo, Ph.D. will discuss the current landscape of bioengineering, specifically 3D Bioprinting, a type of printing that requires the use of bioink made up of a compilation of organic and inorganic materials to build tissues and organs. Dr. Nervo will outline what we are currently able to 3D bioprint and the possibilities of this amazing technique in the future.

The Fifth Element has enough eye-appeal for two good movies.
