Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. We've been holding them in Bournemouth for ten years and are very pleased to have returned to in-person events as of June 2022.

Repairing bodies with tissue engineering 

Dr Sarah Upson

Tuesday 6 June 2023

Many parts of the body cannot effectively renew and repair themselves, for various reasons. This is where tissue engineering and regenerative medicine could step in; to repair, replace or renew tissues in the body. 

These techniques may sound futuristic, but they are increasingly being used to change our approach to medicine and aging. New 3D-printed biomaterials can be implanted into the body, enabling tissue re-growth or the complete replacement of damaged tissues.

Join Dr Sarah Upson, an expert in biomaterials at Bournemouth University, to discover the latest research and what these new technologies could mean for medicine and society. 

We hold these events at The Black Cherry, a fantastic new venue in Boscombe, Bournemouth. Events will start at 6:30pm, but we encourage you to arrive from 5:30pm to enjoy a drink and something to eat before the talk starts.
