Oriel Science is pleased to welcome Dr Sofia Teixeira from Swansea University's Centre for NanoHealth who will give a public lecture on "Organ on a Chip".
Area of innovation being demonstrated
In 1959, Richard Feynman laid the foundations of nanotechnology by pronouncing the famous line “There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom”. Almost sixty years later, this line is still very pertinent and applies to many fields, including medicine. Nanodevices have made and will continue to make a difference in detecting, studying and fighting diseases, while making medical care more accessible to everyone. This talk will showcase the new frontier of nanomedicine: modelling the human organs on small devices
Who should attend?
This is part of our monthly public lecture "Science Café" series which is open to all members of the public.
