Scientists help bodies grow new organs

A team of scientists and surgeons at a Melbourne hospital has developed a method of growing new organs within a patient’s body. Previously, scientists had only been able to create two-dimensional constructions such as skin. But researchers at the Bernard O’Brien Institute of Microsurgery at Melbourne’s St Vincent’s Hospital say have created three-dimensional cells. The cells have been grown in a plastic chamber under the patients’ skin.
