We had the privilege to photograph this great scientist Dr. Suchitra Sumitran-Holgersson, working with using person's own stem cell in order to grow new tissues, veins and much more! Do look at the clip below! Thank you so much Suchitra for supporting Recycle Me, awareness for organ transplantation and donation! The profit from Recycle Me goes to research about organ transplant and donation, this includes finding methods for preventing sickness such as kidney failure, heart disease and much more.
