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!
