World-first regeneration of a living organ

World-first regeneration of a living organ | lifestyle of the future | Scoop.it

For the first time, the team has successfully regenerated a living organ in mice by manipulating DNA.

 

The organ in question was the thymus, which is located next to the heart and is an integral part of the immune system. In humans, it achieves most of its growth in early life, continuing to then grow slowly until puberty when it slowly begins to shrink for the remainder of a person's life. It's deterioration with age leaves older people with greater susceptibility to infections, such as flu.

Thanks to Robert Pratten.

Brad Tollefson's curator insight, July 9, 12:38 AM

The three Cs are:

Characters – the importance of storyConvenience – the importance of getting the right content to the right people at the right timeCommunity – the importance of connecting fans and rewarding them.

At the intersections we see the actions and functions we must support:

Characters+Convenience – the personalization of the story experience for each person based on their relationship to the worldConvenience+Community – the continued “personalization” but in a broader sense as applied to audience segments. For example an audience team collaborates to unlock content that only they can see. Also at this intersection is the ability to share content and refer friends to the worldCommunity+Characters – this is the relationship between the community and the world. Creators should provide opportunities to strengthen the relationship through procedures and technology to allow fan contributions, character interactions and such like.

L’Oreal Goes After 3D Printed Human Skin to Test Beauty Products | lifestyle of the future | Scoop.it
Long pressured to end animal testing in cosmetics, L’Oreal has been in the cultured skin business since the 80s. But it remains a relatively slow and expensive process. Earlier this month they announced a partnership with 3D bioprinting firm Organovo—3D printed skin, it's thought, may offer a more scalable solution.

Tesla’s Elon Musk has revealed his company’s plans to take on compact executive cars, such as the BMW 3-series, with the Tesla Model 3. The all-electric Model 3 (which was originally going to be called the Model E) will be around 20% smaller than the Model S, and will have a shorter range of around 200 miles — but it will have ‘strong performance’ like the Model S and start at just $35,000 (the Model S starts at around $70,000). http://www.peepstalks.com/tesla-announces-the-model-3-at-half-the-price-of-the-model-s-tesla-wants-to-take-evs-mainstream/

3D bioprinting of stem cell structures could combat osteoarthritis | lifestyle of the future | Scoop.it

As yet, nobody has discovered a more effective barrier than human cartilage itself, so there’s no shortage of research going into the creation of new cartilage to replace or repair worn out joints.

 

One promising stream involves the idea of using 3D printing technology to deposit stem cells directly into damaged areas of cartilage so it can grow back as healthy tissue.

First transfusions of "manufactured" blood planned for 2016

First transfusions of "manufactured" blood planned for 2016 | lifestyle of the future | Scoop.it

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 107 million blood donations are collected globally every year.

 

Nonetheless, blood is often in short supply – particularly in developing nations.

 

Despite new safeguards, there's also still the risk of incompatibility, or of infections being transmitted from donors to recipients.

 

Charitable organization the Wellcome Trust hopes to address these problems, by developing the ability to manufacture blood outside of the body. Last week, it announced that test subjects should begin receiving transfusions of blood made with lab-grown red blood cells by late 2016.
