Medical Procedure: Replacing Body Parts
Interesting new medical way to replace organs presented on the PBS television show "NOVA science NOW."
"Scientists are learning how to grow custom-made body parts so they can be ready when you—and your vital organs—start falling apart. At the University of Minnesota, Doris Taylor and her colleagues strip organs of their cells, reseed the organ "skeletons" with living cells, and watch as the organs start working right in front of their eyes."
