NEW SCIENTIST: Welcome to the limb lab where organs are kept alive on shelves

Press/Media: Research

Release date: 6/12/2017

Description

I’M GREETED by the sight of several litres of pig’s blood being poured into bags on a hospital drip-stand. The red splashes on the wall and the stainless steel counters make the place feel like a butcher’s shop, but it is something altogether different. This is James Fildes’s workshop, where he is trying to reanimate detached body parts.
