1 Mins read

One more amazing bit of technology from Wake Forest when you read about how the boys had to wear bags and now they live normal lives. Samples from the bladders were taken and the urethras were grown on the scaffolds. At the TED convention this year, Wake Forest printed a kidney on stage. This absolutely has to be one of the most exciting areas of medicine today as if we could eliminate transplants and there’s no rejection, many more lives could be saves and the five boys here were able to regain quality of life!
