    Event Description

    Sci Soc are proud to present a research talk in association with our long standing Charity partner CMRF! Come and join us this Tuesday in theatre N in Arts for a fascinating talk delivered by Dr Tom Flanagan of the National Children's Research Centre (NCRC) followed by FREE PIZZA Dr Tom Flanagan's project is in the area of cardiology- looking at the area of tissue engineering vascular grafts for children with congenital heart defects. It is an exciting project using cells from patients and a constructed scaffolding to create a structure for artery repair, and that will match the structure of the patient’s artery. With children, the main goal is to have this artificial structure grow with the child, avoiding unnecessary repeated surgery. The talk incorporates an interesting mix of biology and engineering.
