More Stem Cell Magic

A short note today: a reader writes to me with a heads-up on a Wired Today story explaining how the European Union is moving ahead on “tissue engineering” that will use stem cells to reproduce skin, bone and cartilage for treatment of various conditions, including diabetic wounds.

Reader B.W. points out that while we’re waiting and hoping for a cure, there’s much more magic that can be done if science is allowed to thrive. Amen!
