Share Café Scientifique: Xenotransplantation –the solution to our organ shortage?

Event Details

Recent awareness programs about organ donation has highlighted the shortage of organs Australia faces for transplantation. One potential solution may be xenotransplantation – taking organs from animals and transplanting them into humans.

Is this a feasible way forward, or is it sci-fi fantasy? And what are the ethical and social issues around this?

Join our panel of experts as they discuss Xenotransplantation, and then open the floor to you, the audience, to discuss and question them about whether xenotransplantation is a direction Australia should be considering. Have your say.

Speakers to be announced.

In association with the Department for Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education
