Tissue Engineering Body Parts!

I am very excited to learn of Anthony Atala's amazing acheivement of creating a fully functional rabbit penis after 18 years of work.

gummy/11prof.190.jpgThe ability to recreate new bone, cartilage, muscle, blood and other types of connective tissue takes a lot of patience and a strong understanding of how the body puts itself together in embryogenesis and repairs itself after injury.

If you visit Gizmodo, you can see their weeklong series called This Cyborg Life.  All of this is fascinating from a Biomedical Engineering standpoint. I am most interested in the two tissue engineering articles, but do take the time to look at all of them.

Gallery of organs being engineered at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

Article about Artificial Skin (Organogenesis Corp.)-this is about scale up production of a tissue engineered product

Remember to keep up with BioBusinessTV's updates as they release new segments of Stem Cell Review.  I am posting links to the same on my Stem Cell/Tissue Engineering page.

I have been remiss in linking to some kindnesses from others in the form of interviewing me for their podcasts. In case you want to check them out, here you go.

Science Chat's Sean interviewed me this summer while I was getting ready for GAMES 2009. He wanted to talk to me about the use of Beauty for Science Communication. You can listen to a slightly nervous me say "you know" many many times here. Scroll down to Episode 1. I'm halfway or so through, if I remember. What I learned from this is I am slightly uncomfortable talking about my appearance, but I recall enjoying my chat with Sean.

Evadot's Michael Doornbos caught me for an interview about "Inspiring our kids in science"...and for me, the best way to inspire others is to be excited about it yourself. Don't forget to check out other interviews on his site.

That's enought excitement for now.  

Kindly, Joanne
