Regrowing muscle for a wounded Marine - the kind of research that Bobby Schilling has voted to end
I just heard the most amazing story on the Science Friday radio program - and it is a great example of the type of research that Bobby Schilling has voted to stop. The scientist being interviewed discussed his government-funded research into the regeneration of body tissue. One of their early successes was to regrow the leg muscle that a Marine had lost to a road side bomb. The scientist went on to explain that we are on the verge of being able to regrow many types of body tissue including those parts of a heart lost during a heart attack. Again – this is EXACTLY the kind of research that Bobby Schilling has voted to stop.
