Found Words – Bonnie Berkowitz

Sometimes, science can be fun and let you say ridiculous things. If you’re lucky, they make it into the Post.

“‘If one can bioprint functional human organ constructs, then bioprinting a whole human — or whatever will be the name for such a creature — is just a logical extension,’ said Vladimir Mironov, a pioneer in the field who is working with computer companies to design better bioprinting software.

“Others don’t know why anyone would want to do that.

“‘It’s a visionary idea,’ said Mironov’s colleague Jonathan Butcher of Cornell, whose lab is working on printing heart valves. ‘But the usual method of human reproduction works pretty well.'”

-“3-D printers may someday allow labs to create replacement human organs,” The Washington Post, 5/10/11
