Welcome to the Tissue Engineering Planetarium Show!
The Tissue Engineering Planetarium Project has produced several planetarium shows on the subjects of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.

Planetarium Shows

Learn about the mystery of the human brain and the body's extraordinary ability to heal itself! Explore the potential of regenerative medicine to accelerate this process! Take a trip to the bone marrow and through neural fields, learn about the basic biology of the bone, cardiac and spinal cord tissues.


Neural field.

The planetarium movies cover these themes in two formats, with a narrator and with animated characters, Dr. Allevable and Regenerobot. Trailers for these shows are available as well as important ordering information and information on the project and its sponsors. See the shows!

The Adventure Continues!

The project continues to develop Regenerative Medicine educational movies and web tools with the new project Regenerative Medicine Partnership in Education.

This project is funded by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Center for Research Resources, a component of the National Institutes of Health (5 R25 RR15619-05).
