Imagine a diabetic being able to grow pancreatic tissue in order produce their own insulin again. Or envision a dialysis patient growing a new kidney from their own cells. Such things are impossible today, but they could soon become a reality thanks to advances researchers at Harvard Medical School are making in the field of tissue engineering. To this end, I’d invite you to read this informative article on “living legos”—or self-assembling tissues—from Technology Review. If successful, the treatment of diabetes and kidney failure will never be the same.
