Did you know that the adult body has over 206 bones? 54 of them are just in our hands and wrists. If you've ever seen a skeleton or fossil in a museum, you might think that all bones are dead, but your skeleton is a living, active part of your body. In fact, all of your blood cells are manufactured inside your bones. In this session, we'll learn more about the surprising composition of bones, and how biomedical engineers design solutions for patients who have injured a bone.
Preparation: One week before the event, you'll be emailed a list of supplies and ingredients.
Expert: Dr. Adele Changoor received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from École Polytechnique Montréal, and works at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute.
