Researchers from Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London have created cartilage using stem cells taken from patients' body fat that could be used to grow ears and noses, according to a study in the journal Nanomedicine. The process combines the stem cells with ear-shaped scaffolds so chemicals can spur the development of cartilage cells.
