Scientists grew a human ear on a laboratory mouse to demonstrate a transplantation method

October 5, 2011 · 1 comment

In 1995, Dr. Charles Vacanti, an anesthesiologist at the University of Massachusetts and Dr. Linda Griffith-Cima, an assistant professor of chemical engineering at M.I.T. grew a human ear on the back of a mouse to demonstrate a new transplantation technique. To achieve that, they implanted a resorbable polyester fabric with bovine cartilage cells under the skin of a hairless mouse.
