These man-made organs could be the secret to saving millions of lives all over the world. Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology also known as HART is currently working on a system that can turn regular human cells into fully formed organs.
Stem cells have been a hot topic for most of the last decade. Some are very supportive of the process, saying it could save lives, and some are against the idea, arguing that it is unnatural. Regardless of personal stance, the process itself is amazing. HART is able to turn human stem cells into very real tracheae for people with severely damaged organs.
While right now they have only been able to do the one body part, the technology is there to expand and create new opportunities. This is the first step in many to saving many lives.
