Experts to discuss artificial organs and bionic technology at ASAIO meeting

June 13, 2002

The American Society for Artificial Internal Organs has long been the home of next-generation medicine. The Society is now inviting the medical and scientific media to get a glimpse of cutting-edge research in a wide range of bionic technologies. For the first time, a comprehensive slate of news briefings will be offered at the ASAIO Annual Conference to update you on these important advances.

At the dawn of the 21st century, the bionic human is emerging, a living being supplemented by an artificial heart, liver, kidneys, eyes and ears. Cell lines will soon create regenerated tissue to complement man-made bits and factory components - and, before long, the use of such replacement parts will be medicine's standard.

Here is a complete schedule of press briefings for the ASAIO meeting. All will be held in the press room at the Hilton New York, 1335 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10019
