New Nanochip technology that can reprogram cells to replace tissue or even whole organs

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

What I wonder here is if you could do this with uninjured cells, remaking the whole body with new cells.

The new technique, called tissue nanotransfection, is based on a tiny device that sits on the surface of the skin of a living body. An intense, focused electric field is then applied across the device, allowing it to deliver genes to the skin cells beneath it – turning them into different types of cells.
