I know, I know..seems so unlikely doesn’t it? Yet what else could explain a world where postdoctorate fellow Kaylene Simpson can say “There were lots of technical obstacles to overcome and it was very difficult to attract funding at first.”?

Thankfully, her team eventually got the funding needed to grow a complete breast from a single stem cell. Progress marches on!
