Existential Medicine #1: The New BioTech Frontier

Existential Medicine is a new quarterly series presented by New Lab and Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS, with supporting partner EY, exploring technological disruption in the medical field and its impact on the human experience.

In this first edition, The New Biotech Frontier, we discuss laboratory grown body parts, from stem cells to whole organs, from brain organoids to bones. At stake may be the future of modern medicine, given the power of this technology to shape human therapies.

Moderated by Janna Levin, Tow Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Barnard College of Columbia University and renowned researcher on black holes and spacetime.
