Tissue Engineering and Art Workshop

The Tissue Engineering and Art Workshop introduces participants to tissue culture and tissue engineering.


These branches of biomedical research have a major influence on perceptions of body, self and medical thinking. Tissue engineering enables researchers to grow three dimensional living tissue constructs of varying sizes, shapes and tissue types.

This two-day intensive workshop introduces artists and other interested people to basic principles of animal tissue culture and tissue engineering, as well as its history and the different artistic projects working with tissue culture and engineering.
