(Found via Transhumanity). Australian researchers have successfully used stem cell medical technology to grow organs in culture. Admittedly, their choice of organ would not be the first one I would have worked on, but nonetheless they have made some important breakthroughs. Specifically, they have found how to grow a blood system within the organ, vital to create working transplants. The researchers are very optimistic about the potential of their work to produce available therapies within the next decade: this is encouraging indeed.
