From Prometheus to the Naked Mole Rat: A KU Natural History Museum Science on Tap Event | Bier Station
October 23, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Our fascination with Prometheus and pop-culture icons such as Wolverine indicates that our society has a persistent and unmistakable interest in perfect wound repair, or regeneration. Much scientific effort is devoted to trying to crack the “regeneration code” to prevent imperfect wound repair, which leads to scar formation. Join Dr. Michele Pritchard at this Science on Tap KC event to discuss her effort to leverage secrets from the naked mole rat to improve tissue repair after toxic liver injury and to delay aging in the human ovary.
