Episode Summary

EDIT
Body Building
AIRED:
Most people do not think of engineers as body builders, but MIT scientists are building body tissues from scratch in a lab. Tissue engineers are building everything from a nose, heart tissue, retina tissues and liver tissues. Now that the first complete liver is living, how far do scientists have to go to use lab-produced livers in liver transplant recipients? Some say the "Lab Liver" will be available for our grandchildren, but maybe sooner. Others say this is the first step towards building a complete laboratory version of the human body.moreless
