Today we went on a field trip to the University of Rochester to get a tour of the new biomedical/bioengineering building and labs. It was pretty cool. We got to see the work being done on artificial tissues from not only creation standpoint but also the testing/characterization standpoint. They were using ultrasonic waves and other techniques to view and atually form the tissues. On a side note, while were at the U of R the fire alarm went off and the building had to be evacuated. Apparently there was no fire so we eventually went back inside and finished the tour.
