I went to the talk and discussion event at The Heart and Lung Repair Shop.

The Heart and Lung Repair Shop
4 scientists explained their researches around heart and lung repair. They were

  • Building your own heart from stem cells
  • Making E-cigarette into a prescribed drug
  • Repairing your organs by taking medicine, which stimulates the stem cells
  • Creating personalised medicines by checking your DNA

All the researches involve some ethical issues, including misuse of the medicines, data protection of your DNA codes and knowing the time you will have a terrible disease in the future.

I am very curious to know what the future medicine is going to be with more development in stem cell research and if we will all become immortal one day.
