Betting on Better Organs

Abstract:
Atala may be the one to do it, says Steve Chung, a urologist based in Ottawa, Illinois, who wrote an editorial accompanying The Lancet paper. Atala has been researching tissue engineering "probably more than any other urologist," says Chung, and his scaffold - a biodegradable mix of collagen and polyglycolic acid (PGA) - is "just as good as the best scaffolds out there." (Chung himself is currently trying to use nanotechnology to obtain a better scaffold.)
