SciFri: Bionics & Tissue Engineering

I just lis­tened to this epid­sode of a pod­cast that I like a lot; Sci­ence Fri­day: Mak­ing Sci­ence Radioac­tive.

In this episode, sev­er­al peo­ple are inter­viewed about things relat­ing to the top­ic. Here’s some of the things that they discuss:

  • A mile­stone in sci­ence: Blad­ders are grown in labs and then put into chil­dren who were born with blad­ders that did­n’t work very well.
  • If and when we’ll be able to grow oth­er body parts such as oth­er organs, or even limbs.
  • How expen­sive this might be.
  • Mechan­i­cal hands, arms, and legs.
  • Mak­ing humans so that they could actu­al­ly regrow a lost limb, like crea­tures such as starfish are able to do.

It’s very inter­est­ing. Go check it out!
