Saturdays 20th and 27th February 2016, 11am to 3pm at Phoenix Brighton, 10 – 14 Waterloo Place, Brighton BN2 9NB
Is it really possible that one day human life might be extended way beyond what we now think of as the norm? Might humans in the future really be able to live indefinitely? Amidst the plethora of information poured out by the media and on the internet, telling us of miracle cures, 3D printed body parts, tissue engineering, gene therapies, human enhancement and the longevity revolution, it is difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. Some people even speculate that the first 1000 year old person is already alive, so how can we know what is true?
For two Saturdays in February we’re offering a unique chance to meet scientists working at the forefront of their field so you can find out for yourself what is happening on our doorstep at the Brighton Centre for Regenerative Medicine, part of the University of Brighton. Professor Matteo Santin and scientists from his team, working at the cutting edge of biomedical science, will be in the galleries from 11am to 3pm on Saturdays 20th and 27th February, setting up displays about their work and offering the opportunity to gain a privileged insight into developments in contemporary biomedical science.
Drop in for informal conversation about art and science, ask the questions that you want to know the answers to, and find out what scientists and researchers are working on at BCRM now, and how their work might make a difference to our lives.
This event is FREE. Part of Brighton Science Festival
