Join Dr Alicia el Haj for a Café Scientifique event on the science of magnetically-controlled stem cells


What if an injection to the arm could heal a broken leg?

Professor Alicia El Haj and her team are discovering how to heal by remote control. After injecting stem cells into the body, it is possible to steer, guide them to a specific location, and remotely activate them, all from outside the body. 

At the site of a broken bone, an arthritic joint or blind eye, the stem cells can proliferate into healthy tissue, the body repairing itself without scarring.

What is a Café Scientifique?

A Café Scientifique is an informal dialogue-based event with a scientist. A short talk by the speaker is followed by audience questions, an interactive activity and discussion for the rest of the event.
