All I can say is WOW!!!!

The future of this could be amazing. If this was developed a little sooner maybe my dad might still be here.....

And if it were developed for any future use maybe, just maybe, my ex might grow a brain :dyinglaughing:

Sorry apparently it only works where there are existing cells! So blondes and ex's are out of luck! :dyinglaughing:

Just think, no more donators needed, you need a kidney we will grow you a new one.

"If we can pull this off in missing parts the next step is, OK, can we grow a pancreas? Can we grow and replace that in a diabetic?


Man, I would definitely love to see this happen (being diabetic myself)! What a great possibility, I would really love to have the option some day of having a new, working pancreas.
