Synthetic Gel Mimics Amphibians' Ability to re-grow | Biomimicry |

"Engineers at two universities in Pittsburgh have copied the way amphibians regenerate their body parts in the model for the synthetic gel. [...]  The ability of amphibians to re-grow a limb or a tail was a "truly a remarkable thing", Ms Balazs said. She added: "You can mimic in a synthetic material something that happens in biology. It does not even happen in human beings, really."
