Little Cells, Big Organ

Pivoting away from AI this week and writing about an advancement in biotech with the β€œmini liver,” a marvel by LyGenesis. This innovation involves transplanting donor liver cells into a patient’s lymph node, potentially revitalizing liver functions. This technique not only utilizes the body’s natural sites for growth but also bypasses the limitations of traditional organ transplantation, including donor shortages and rejection risks.
