Woman Who Received a Face Transplant After Chimp Attack Is Back in Hospital
(HARTFORD, Conn.) — The Connecticut woman who underwent a face transplant five years ago after being attacked by a chimpanzee is back in a Boston hospital after doctors discovered her body is rejecting tissue from the transplant. Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, director of plastic surgery transplantation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said Wednesday that Charla Nash is experiencing a “moderate rejection episode” and the transplant is not in jeopardy.

We'll Be Able to Grow Fresh Body Parts From Cartilage By 2019
This article originally appeared on Inverse. By Peter Rugg Just last week, a teenage boy was the recipient of the first 3D-printed nose transplant ever performed in the United States, and it looks as if he'll have company soon. The process works by first taking a small sampling of cells from the patient's cartilage, then growing them in an incubator over a period of weeks. Meanwhile, the shape of the patient's absent body part is scanned. The cells are then combined with a liquid formula to create a jelly-like substance that is then shaped into the missing limb via 3D printing, following the scan as a blueprint. Reagents ...

Does the Nose Know?
By Lisa Qu Smelling a cup of freshly brewed coffee can be a rich, almost magical, experience. In fact, in that brief moment, you are smelling a mixture of more than 800 different molecules that make up the smell of coffee. Part of what makes that experience so rich also makes the sense of smell notoriously difficult to study. Unlike vision or hearing, where stimuli range along a set scale - for example, brightness or frequency - odorants exist in a multi-dimensional space with most, like coffee, composed of hundreds or even thousands of different compounds in varying combinations. Furthermore, odors can be very transient, ...
