Workshop: Tissue Engineering | November 27, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. & November 28, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
This workshop is for artists and humanities practitioners.

Tissue engineering enables researchers to grow three-dimensional living tissues of varying sizes, shapes, and types. These technologies escape the biomedical research labs, as increasing numbers of commercial biological products enter free markets, creating a major influence on popular perceptions of life, death, body, self, and medical thinking. Due to this transition from scientific labs to popular culture, tissue engineering technologies have increasingly become an area for artistic engagement.

This two-day intensive workshop will introduce artists and humanities practitioners to basic principles of animal tissue culture and tissue engineering, as well as to its history in science and arts. For more information, contact Boris Oicherman (boris@umn.edu).
