Transplanting cells, not organs: Susan Lim on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Pioneering surgeon Susan Lim performed the first liver transplant in Asia. But a moral concern with transplants (where do donor livers really come from …) led her to look further, and to ask: Could we be transplanting cells, not whole organs? At the INK Conference, she talks through her new research, discovering healing cells in some surprising places. (Recorded at the INK Conference, December 2010, in Lavasa, India. Duration: 16>26)
