The National Science Foundation’s Night of the Living Limb- How Bioengineering Can Solve the Zombie Apocalypse Problem

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

When people think of bioengineering, their thoughts often run to the macabre. Frankenstein, Walkers, Caribbean pirates, and all manner of zombies haunt, crawl, and shamble to the forefront of their minds. However, in the real world bioengineering isn’t that scary. We live in a world where lives can be saved, organs can be grown or 3-D printed and new discoveries are constantly on the horizon.

Join us as our NSF-funded experts and entrepreneurs in tissue-engineering and soft materials printing gather to discuss the current state of the art and imagine the future possibilities.
