Scientists at the MRC Center for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Edinburgh have grown a fully functional thymus from fibroblasts of a mouse, according to a study in the journal Nature Cell Biology. Thymic epithelial cells were mixed with other thymus cell types and transplanted into a mouse, where they organized themselves and grew into a whole organ. The organ produced T cells and appeared to be fully functional.
