Hair-Growing Cells Can Now Be Made From Ordinary Skin Cells

Regrowing hair from our own skin cells is now a possibility. A team of stem cell scientists (a team from the University of Pennsylvania and the New Jersey Institute of Technology) took adult human skin cells and transformed them into a particular type of cell that people lose when they lose their hair, called epithelial stem cells. After creating the epithelial stem cells, the scientists transferred them onto the skin of mice, which then grew human skin, human hair follicles, and the beginnings ...

Did you ever think about that? Storing energy in order to redistribute it when needed (following a bit the cow-dwelling model). Well, this simply does not cross our minds very frequently because, as far as we are used to, electricity is generally not stored, but immediately consumed. But given the growing ...
