The Buffalo Museum of Science presents a Tissue Engineering exhibition presents the basic sciences behind this complex topic and gives some real-world perspectives and applications so that visitors can become familiar with developments happening today.

For young visitors, it also is a chance to discover the job opportunities possible in a wide range of fields—from applied science to government policy to design and engineering careers.
For everyone, it’s a chance to learn a bit more about how humans are put together, what happens when we get injured or diseased, how we heal, and how we might be able to improve and enhance these processes.

Exhibit guests can learn about:
The function of cells in the human body and how they work together
The basics of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
Popular misconceptions and ethical concerns regarding this type of science
How some animals, like starfish, are able to regenerate whole body parts
And more!

Divided into four parts, this exhibit is designed to teach even the young

This exhibit is funded by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health.
