when you first referenced the cartridge I thought they were using it as a storage or transport device.

after the photo I see they were also an active part of the process. somebody was thinking 'outside the box' for that idea. 'island of dr moreau', now belongs to dr packard.

this is too wild. this research has been added to my: another reason to get up everyday. I am especially hopeful that liver research will be beneficial, for selfish reasons.
