Summary
Will replacing a body part be as easy as replacing a light bulb some day? In Body Building, a part of the PBS Scientific American Frontiers series, host Alan Alda journeys behind the scenes with MIT's Robert Langer for a remarkable window into the current scientific advances in repair and replacement of damaged human body parts. The program follows scientists and researchers as they experiment with the growth of liver, heart, and eye tissue and reveal the innovative "liver chip," a first step in modeling key functions of the body on the lab bench. In Alda's own words, this program is a rare look at "the new marriage of biology and engineering."
