Pearl Discusses Facial Transplants During PopTech Conference

Professor Sharrona Pearl was one of the featured speakers during the PopTech conference in Camden, Maine Oct. 23 – 25.

Her talk focused on her research into facial transplants; what does your face say about who you are? What happens when the face you wear is not your own? She discussed her research into facial allografts, "facial transplants," as a way to think about what faces tell us, and what we do when we can no longer trust them.

The PopTech conference is described by WIRED magazine  as a gathering for “real thinkers” –a mix of highly motivated and curious speakers, PopTech Fellows, and other participants.
