Café on the Next Edge -- Printing Living Cells with a Printing Machine

2011-11-30 (Wed) 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

As one outreach activity, the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers, "Development of Three-dimensional Structured Innovative-human Normal and Disease Tissue Models at Single Cell Level," headed by MATSUSAKI Michiya, will hold "Café on the Next Edge -- Printing Living Cells with a Printer" on Wednesday, November 30.

Dr. MATSUSAKI is examining creating human tissue models through a special method that uses a modified ink jet printer. It is expected the tissue models produced by his method can be used for testing medicines, presenting an alternative to using animals or test tube cell cultures in experiments. He will explain about the mystery of creating cell tissues through printing technology.
