CORDIS reports two US based biotech companies have been granted ethical permission to attempt to regenerate the brains of people declared clinically dead from TBI.
Known for successfully transplanting a bioengineered stem cell-based trachea, surgeon Paolo Macchiarini plans to use his technique to recreate more complex tissue. He has recently made attempts to regenerate brain tissue in rats and mice.
