ABOUT FIB
This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 006 - Engineering Organs with Dr. Linda Griffith

    NOTE: We sincerely apologize for the audio quality. While it was a very difficult mix, there was no question that Dr. Griffith's visionary work was worth sharing!

    While we probably won't see any replicants (Blade Runner) seeking world domination any time soon, we really are at a crossroads of science fiction and biotechnology. Dr. Griffith is a leader in the field of tissue engineering: a field that seeks to develop replacement organs and tissues, and also provide an unlimited supply of living human organs for scientists to use to better understand disease and develop new therapies.

    Dr. Griffith has chosen to tackle the latter approach. By providing a high fidelity system in which to study organ function and disease, she is accelerating the pace of drug/therapeutic development. In doing so, cures could become available to patients before they get to the point of organ failure and the need for transplant surgery.
