Newswise — If you are interested in this major new development in tissue engineering and need direct access to the investigator, Newswise and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center are collaborating to offer this brand new high-tech journalism tool. Newswise hosts the first live, interactive virtual event for major research finding for journalists. You are invited to a Newswise Live event on Friday April 11th at 12:30-1:00 PM EDT featuring Dr. Anthony Atala answering your questions about his recent research “Laboratory-Grown Vaginas Implanted in Patients”.

“Scientists reported the first human recipients of laboratory-grown vaginal organs. A research team led by Anthony Atala, M.D., director of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine, describes in the Lancet long-term success in four teenage girls who received vaginal organs that were engineered with their own cells.”

This live event provides reporters with the unique opportunity to have a face-to-face (virtual and video) encounter with Dr. Atala. This is a new technology for holding meetings, and its essence is real-time engagement replicating the experience of being in a physical room with the source. Dr. Atala and all journalists in the event will be on video (webcam) and visible to one another.

The Newswise Live welcome room for the event will open at 11:30 AM EST. You are invited to drop in, get comfortable, address any technical issues you might encounter, then go about your work until the event begins at 12:30. If this is your first time participating in a Newswise Live event, we urge you join the welcome room early. A limited number of journalists will have access to the room; those who arrive first are guaranteed entry.
