From Nov. 27:
Many patients today spend years waiting for the live-saving transplant they require. Even with live organ donors stepping in to offer organs for loved ones, there still are not enough organs for patients awaiting transplantation.

From biokidneys to 3-D printing, scientists have taken several approaches recently to solve this problem.
