"A computer displays an image of the "scaffolding" for a human ear being created by a nearby printer in a laboratory at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. on Wednesday, May 8, 2013.

The university is experimenting with various ways to create replacement organs for human implantation, from altering animal parts to building them from scratch with a patient’s own cells.”
