Hello Science Fans!
Do you know anyone who experienced organ transplantation?
Are you curious about the process of transferring a healthy organ from one body to another?
In this episode of the SHE-ensya Why Series, we look at the science behind organ transplants! We discuss the history of organ transplantation, and its general process – including the very important tests that need to be done to make sure that the donor and recipient of the organ are compatible.
Also, if you’ve heard about the recent scientific breakthrough where a man received an organ transplant from a GMO pig, then you better check this video out!
The SHE-ensya why series will dissect some of our most head scratching why questions, teasing out the scientific principles from historical records, conspiracy theories and mass media.
Thank you so much for dropping by!
