A recent discussion with a researcher here at UT, who, at a conference, saw a presentation by a doctor using stem cells to grow a new tooth, in situ, as a natural tooth.

Hope you are well.
An interesting graphic about global warming exists from an atmospheric researcher at UAlabama-Hunstville. Don't recall his name. Search at will. 2000 years of data??? Warming is a long period natural phenomenon???
A news item I've seen lately discusses success growing whole breasts in the laboratory. Not just one tissue or another, but whole breasts.
Guess this is being done for research, but perhaps someday for mastectomy or transplant purposes??. Clearly we are somewhat able to grow some body organs. What's next --- growing whole arms or legs for transplantation???
Good luck!!!! Grown from STEM cells from an affected individual/patient??.
Apparently it is difficult/not possible for someone with a brain
injury to regenerate brain tissue. Perhaps someday someone will grow brain
tissue outside of the body (from STEM cells??) in the laboratory. It's alive, it's alive!!! This would help cure possibly many diseases. Mental retardation, ALS???, Parkinson's disease, Cerebral Palsy and many others. An adept surgeon could install the brain tissue grown in a laboratory outside of the body??? It may be a while until this happens. Patients in wheel chairs for years might walk again??? Hope so.
