Researchers at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center have developed little replacement livers. This could mean a huge break in the fight for engineered organs, which could potentially save thousands of individuals waiting for donors.

Although these little replacement livers are not ideal for patients yet, they will allow for testing the safety of new drugs, not to mention helping in the growth of human-sized livers.
