In Britain, Professor Jonathan Slack believes it's time to start thinking now about the medical ethics while he's still dealing with tadpoles-- and before somebody tries his techniques on human embryos.
There's a huge unmet need for human organs, such as hearts or livers, for transplant operations.
Theoretically, the needs can be met by growing the organs in a lab.
To do that a human embryo could be altered, like Professor Slack's tadpoles to supress all the parts of the body, except the needed organ-- and a heart and circulatory system to nourish it.
