Nano Bone

New Scientist is carrying this article detailing a new discovery in stem cell research. By creating a substrate with a special nano-scale pattern, and nothing else, scientists were able to get bone marrow stem cells to transform into bone cells themselves. The hope is this discovery could lead to new techniques in the creation of various kinds of surgical implants.

No more parts by Mattel, no more funny looks from the TSA before you get on a plane. Sounds like a plan to me!
