Belgian Scientists Successfully Create Human Lung Tissue from Stem Cells By Dominic Ansel, Vahimir Emile, and Giancarlo Schliemann
Just recently Belgian Scientists have successfully taken embryonic stem cells, cells from a early stage fetus, and have been able to recreate human lung tissue.
How embryonic stem cell research works First scientists must obtain early stage fetuses. Once they have this they take out the pluripent (the small blue cells in the center of the blastocyst). With these cells, scientists will now be able to “trick” the cells into what they want them to be. For instance, lung tissue.
