Scientists made mini lungs.

Apparently scientists have succeeded to make functional 3D mini lungs in the lab. This is a first, but important, step on the long road to creating human organs in the lab. It is this type of research that makes me opportunistic about the future of organ replacement. I think that in thirty to fifty years from now, we do not need human or even animal donors to save lives since it will be possible to create organs at will. For that reason I have no intent to write stories featuring organlegging.

  1. I wasn’t familiar with the term organlegging. Although was aware or the activity. Hope the growing of organs works. 🙂
