Researchers aim to end agonizing wait for transplants

Abstract:
Dr. Joseph Vacanti is trying to make organ farming a reality. His work is anything but a horror show – and thanks to MEMS technology, it won’t be the stuff of fiction forever. “MEMS is the only way to solve this problem,” says Jeffrey Borenstein, head of the Biomedical Engineering Lab at Draper, and Vacanti’s research partner. “With MEMS and nanotechnology, you can build the structure and put the cells right where you want them.”
