Café Scientifique with Dr Kevin Chalut, as part of the 2013 Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.
Can you grow an organ in the lab? Can you grow new cells to replace diseased ones? Embryonic stem (ES) cells have the potential to grow into any cell in the body, but how is the cell type determined? Find out with Dr Kevin Chalut as he delves into a biotechnology toolbox of techniques used to uncover factors that influence how ES cells mature into their final function.
Dr Kevin Chalut is a Royal Society Research Fellow based at the University of Cambridge.
