11/30/2009 - New PTEI exhibit at the Carnegie Science Center
The RegMed project collaborated on a new interactive exhibit now on display at the Carnegie Science Center. Headed by the Pittsburgh Tissue Engineering Initiative (PTEI), "If a Starfish Can Grow a New Arm, Why Can't I?" explores the science of regenerative medicine through a series of fun, engaging installations.
Working with PTEI, RegMed developed “Dr. Allevable’s Laboratory,” a kiosk of three video games that lets visitors interact with stem cells inside the body. Also available to view upon request are the planetarium shows “Dr. Allevable’s Unbelievable Laboratory: Bone and Heart” and “Regenerobot and the Robot Science Fair,” both created by PTEI and the RegMed project.
