Surgeons have successfully transplanting bioengineered stem cell-based trachea, composed of both artificial and biological material. Now they plan to use the technique to recreate more complex tissues, such as the esophagus and diaphragm or organs such as the heart and lungs. Researchers have also made an experimental attempt to regenerate brain tissue in mice and rats.
