Pint of Science: Growing 3D Tissues Outside the Body

93 Feet East 150 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL


During our life time the tissues of our body get damaged.  Exercise, eating well and reduced stress among other factors are important for leading a healthy life style. When we are healthy, many of our tissues have the unique capacity to repair and regenerate. Sometimes, our tissues cannot repair themselves any more because of genetic factors, aging or severe injuries. What can we do to fix it? Join Dr Shukry Habib to explore the pioneering methods in engineering human tissues in the lab to repair damaged organs. For more information click here .

Paula Alexandre and Shukry Habib would like to express their gratitude to the Royal Society for funding and co-organising this meeting. We also would like to thank all the speakers and the participants for their contributions to the success of the meeting. We hope you enjoyed it and gained new insights into the mechanisms of asymmetric cell division.  We look forward to seeing you in the next meeting.



 Immobilized WNT Proteins Act as A Stem Cell Niche for Tissue Engineering


Our manuscript was accepted and published online in Stem Cell Reports and featured in RegMedNet

  • One-step aldehyde-based chemistry to covalently immobilize hydrophobic WNT proteins

  • Long-term storage and continued activation of WNT signaling over days

  • WNT platform can enrich and maintain adult/embryonic stem cells in 2D cultures

  • Basal WNT can direct 3D multicellularity for engineering tissues


 International Scientific Meeting: Mechanisms Of Asymmetric Cell Division


Theo Murphy scientific meeting 14-15 November, 2016, Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire. Organised by Dr Shukry Habib and Dr Paula Alexandre, this is a residential meeting which allows for increased networking and discussion. It is free to attend, but participants will need to cover their accommodation and catering costs. Registration information will be available in the coming weeks. Please visit the Royal Society website for the latest information.

Science Museum - Lates


"The Next Big Thing - in collaboration with the Royal Society" 


The Science Museum’s Lates is a free night for adults that takes place on the last Wednesday of the month. Lates have a different theme each month. On Wednesday 24th June, Dr Shukry Habib (Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, King's College London) will be presenting... 


Asymmetry in Art, Nature and Stem Cells  

Have you ever considered the similarities between art and science? Did you know that irregularity shapes our lives? Join Dr Habib  as he uses stunning imagery to explore the beauty of being different. Places limited to 50 visitors. 


Location: The Launchpad Briefing Room

Times: 7:30 - 8:00pm, 8:15 - 8:45pm and 9:00 - 9:30pm.
