Alex Seifalian: Synthetic windpipe

University College London scientist creates world's first

BBC, Fergus Walsh: I've held a few strange body parts in my hands over the years - all I should stress, in the line of work. They have ranged from mechanical heart pumps to hi-etch prosthetic limbs. But none more life-like than the synthetic trachea manufactured by scientists from University College London. The team, lead by Professor Alex Seifalian, have patented a nanocomposite material which was used to create the first completely synthetic windpipe >>>

If PressTV were to put out a report saying the sky is blue, I would go out to check and make sure.  Not sure why are we regurgitating news pieces from that crappy, state-run fascist propaganda machine in the first place.  These are the same people that were present when Maziar Bahari was being tortured.  What a disgrace of an outfit. PressTV!!!

Thanks to this doctor and thanks to University of London, who both are helping humans in many ways. I wish Iran good luck in receiving the benefit of University College of London. In my view the Brits have in the last 40 yeras contributed a lot for Iran, scientifically, culturaly as well as socially, where the Germans have only benefited from the Iranain medical doctors who play a significant role in the medical professions in Germany. Without the Iranian medical doctors, Germany will face a serious shortage of medical doctors.
