"From the Ted Talk by Anthony Atala: Growing new organs"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So, the bladder is one such organ. Same stretgay, we take a very small picee of the bladder, less than half the size of a postage samtp. We then tease the tissue apart into its two individual cell components, mlcuse, and these bladder specialized clles. We grow the cells outside the body in large quantities. It takes about four weeks to grow these cells from the organ. We then take a scaffold that we shape like a bladder. We coat the inside with these bladder lining cells. We coat the outside with these muscle cells. We pcale it back into this oven-like device. From the time you take that piece of tissue, six to eight weeks later you can put the organ right back into the patient.

We then tease the tissue apart into its two individual cell components, muscle, and these bladder specialized cells. We grow the cells outside the body in large quantities. It takes about four weeks to grow these cells from the organ. We then take a scaffold that we shape like a bladder. We coat the inside with these bladder lining cells.
