Foreign body

  • Mini brains, nanotechnology and organ chips
  • Geist Heidelberg, In dialogue

The boundaries of the human body are shifting: micro- and nanobots enable direct, invasive treatment of diseased cells. Mini-brains, organoids and organ chips open up organs and their functions for medical tests and experiments.
Are we making foreign bodies our own or alienating the human body?
