15 Parts Of The Human Body Science Succeeded In Growing In A Lab

Ah, science! It's a never-ending journey of discovery, a relentless pursuit of knowledge, a never-ending quest to understand the world around us. From the earliest days of human civilization, we've been trying to push the boundaries of what we can do and learn. We've come a long way since then, and we've made some amazing discoveries along the way. 

Take, for example, the amazing progress we've made in the field of regenerative medicine. We've been able to grow mini livers, brains, blood cells, lungs, hair follicles, human eggs, bones, brain cells that can play Pong, tear glands, bile ducts, stomachs, bladders, joints, and even hearts. We're even working on lab-grown penises! 

The possibilities are endless, and the potential for medical breakthroughs is immense. This list is a testament to the progress we've made, and the potential for even more amazing discoveries in the future. From mini livers to, uh, lab-grown penises, it's a testament to the power of science.

A joint effort to ease joint pain.

CRACKED JOINTS Researchers at the School of Medicine are working on a new way to help people with arthritis: living joint replacements made from the patient's own cells.

A big step forward for medical science: seven kids, five years, and new organs!

CRACKED THE BLADDER Seven kids with spina bifida got bladders grown from their own cells implanted, and they've been working for five years or more. It's the first time complex organs have been implanted in humans, bringing us closer to growing new organs for those who need them.

Brainy Pong players: not quite sentient, but close enough.

CRACKED BRAIN CELLS (THAT PLAY PONG) Scientists grew brain cells in a lab that can play Pong. Some experts called it exciting, but definitely warned against calling them sentient. E Б

Problem solved: 3D printing bones, one breath at a time.

CRACKED BONES Columbia researchers grew two small bones using digital images, 3D scaffolding, and a bioreactor chamber to feed oxygen, hormones, and nutrients. They solved the problem of creating lab-grown bones in the exact shape of the originals.

Egg-cellent news! (sorry)

CRACKED HUMAN EGGS Scientists grew human eggs from early stages to full maturity in a lab, which could lead to new infertility treatments and regenerative medicine therapies. This is a major breakthrough, since before they could only mature eggs from a late stage.
