View Full Version : Artificial jellyfish made from rat cells

A team of scientists from Harvard University and the California Institute of Technology have built an eight-armed jellyfish by inserting muscle cells from a rat into a sheet of silicone. The resulting "medusoid," as they called it, could offer insights into tissue engineering -- such as re-building a heart. And show that when building tissues, there might be several ways or materials to use other than those found in nature.

I'm thinking that if they can do this, they can probably grow hair on bald mice.
