Room 207 (Hynes Convention Center)Transplantations of artificial organs have become a reality. They require skills not only in surgery but also in biomaterials, bioengineering, stem cell culture and biology, tumor biology, and molecular biology. In this session, a team behind artificial trachea transplantation in a patient and the analysis thereof will talk about the efforts made to take modern medicine to the next level.
