Have you seen this? It is amazing!

MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12136506/) - Lab-grown organs are science fiction no longer
Engineered bladders transplanted into 7 patients in ‘startling’ advance.

A doctor at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine dips a specially constructed biodegradable mold, shaped like a bladder, and seeded with human bladder cells, into a growth solution at Wake Forest Uinversity in Winston-Salem, N.C.
