Tissue engineering

Each of our bodies is utterly unique, which is a lovely thought until it comes to treating an illness – when every body reacts differently, often unpredictably, to standard treatment. Tissue engineer Nina Tandon talks about a possible solution: Using pluripotent stem cells to make personalized models of organs on which to test new drugs and treatments, and storing them on computer chips. (Call it extremely personalized medicine.) http://www.ted.com/talks/nina_tandon_could_tissue_engineering_mean_personalized_medicine.html
