The Researchers at BioMediTech develop Human Spare Parts
BioMediTech organized a seminar 30th May at Tampere introducing the newest development in iPS cell technology and human spare parts at BioMediTech. The key speaker in the seminar was Nobel Laureate, Millennium Technology Prize winner (2012) Prof Shinya Yamanaka, who spoke on the recent development on iPS cell technology and the possibilities it offers to stem cell research.
-Human spare parts-research programme is a good example of combining the knowledge of the researchers in many fields. There are doctors, bioscientists and engineers working in the programme, says Prof Katriina Aalto-Setälä from UTA.
-There are biomaterials companies in Tampere and there is diverse education available, adds Prof Minna Kellomäki from TUT.
There were about 400 people present in the seminar at Tampere Hall and almost as many watching the seminar online.
