Gizmodo reports on the astounding work of Dr. Anthony Atala. For over 20 years, he’s specialized in regenerative medicine, which focuses on repairing or replacing human tissue to assist in healing. Some of Atala’s projects include growing organs, cell therapies to help conditions like diabetes and tissue engineering.

Perhaps most interesting is his prediction of what will be possible in 20 years:

I don’t know how long it will take, but I do foresee a future when organs will be available off-the-shelf, ready to “plug in” and replace injured or diseased organs. I believe we’ll have a boutique of technologies that will includes tissue engineering and cell therapies and doctors will select the ideal treatment based on the patient’s needs.
