Bodies can be built in a lab? This research is not something that could happen in the distant future. It is being used today to growfresh organs, opening new avenues for studying the disease and the immune system and reduce the need for organ transplants.

Organ culture, the labs are popping up all over the planet, and show impressive results. Here we look at the state of the union of a rapidly advancing field called tissue engineering: what has been achieved so far, and what is just around the corner.

Patients who undergo organ transplants require loads of toxic drugs to suppress your immune system, otherwise your body may reject the organ. However, tissue engineering could make organ transplants a thing of the past. Using a patient’s cells to grow new types of tissue in the lab, researchers are finding new ways of engineering as new body parts using their own cells.

Correspondent Tamara Krinsky visits with Dr. Anthony Atala and learns about building organs in his lab. Wired Science heads to two underground labs in search of neutrinos. Adam Rogers combs Kansas wheat fields for rocks from outer space. Wired Science investigates bring meat and milk from cloned animals to the public.

    Looks like August was a great month for you, Kristen! But considering your biahrdty is coming up so soon, September is looking pretty promising as well The best part about August for me was coming back up to school in Orlando. Although I do miss my family in Miami, I also missed the way of life up here as well!Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance recently posted..

    Can they just go on a natural way of building muscle?i know this wonderful program that worked for me. Itsin the site:MusclesMaximizer (d0t) infoive been using it for about a month now and it gave mewhat i needed. I gained muscle fast and also my staminais increasing. Really an intense workout. NICE 1 ^_^

    Thumbs up if you clicked this expecting a weightlifting video (bodybuilding)

  4. I know right : /That’s even more disappointing when that’s the only thing I really want to watch :|

    Scientists have found a way to use genetic engineering to help those who would have otherwise died. If you know anyone with diabetes then they’ll be taking insulin from genetically altered bacteria. The genetic engineering that is being done has been done on a smaller scale for thousands of years with farming and selective breeding. Just because the technology exists to alter exactly what we want its branded “unnatural”? If you want to deny an organ that would save you then go ahead

  7. They don’t need saline for the iphone… aluminum works

  8. GoldHealth says:

    Dr. Frankenstein lives! These scientists have no morals or sense of restraint. They toy with the building blocks of life, as if the human body is like a car- just a machine with a bunch of parts. The unintended consequences of this factory farming approach to humans and animals, including genetic engineering of animals and plants, will make a world of mutants and monsters. We will be living in a sci-fi movie, but not a fun one.

    AUDIO IS OUT OF SYNC and Thus far i feel as though It happens ONLY for educational on youtube.

  10. bestSVMS says:

    the iphone airplane thingiplane :) and all it has to do is to have a cunductive plate about size of finger touch the screenback of spoon on side worksso you could attach that, instead of fancy saline solutionjust attach some foil to thatbut then you need to find a way to ground it

  11. miltech29 says:

    this videos are very interesting and this people coming out with this stupid comercials…not fair!!!!

  12. the sync is a problem thru the whole video. annoying with a capital A

  13. lol yeah i noticed that

  14. addmoreice says:

    this video has sync issues at about 3 minutes

  15. wiseye61 says:

    so i was first to watch this video! ^_^
