PostSubject: Scientists Grow Lung Cells From Stem Cells   Mon Aug 01, 2011 9:38 pm

excerpt:

"This is a very exciting development, and could be a huge step towards being able to build human lungs for transplantation or to repair lungs severely damaged by incurable diseases such as cancer," Julia Polak, an Imperial College London professor who led the research team, said in a press statement.

Found in human embryos, embryonic stem cells are primitive cells with the power to transform into any one of the 200 or so specialized cell types found in the human body—from brain and nerve cells to heart and liver cells."

i'll take a set of lungs, a liver, and a stomach for starters. On second thought, I wonder just how big something could be grown? Might be fun to be nicknamed Mr Ed...... Very Happy
