This creation comes from a team of researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch who made a functional lung from donated lungs too damaged to transplant.

The scientists first created a sort of skeleton for the lung by removing the cells from a damaged lung — leaving behind natural scaffolding to host their engineered tissue (made from a donated lung that could not be transplanted but still had viable cells).
