hi

I've read that it is possible to grow tissue in laboratories, eg from a
few skincells a whole piece of skin can be produced to be transplanted
to patients. One interesting goal of this technique is to also grow
nervous cells, and this, as far as i remember, has been achieved to some
extend, my question is the following: is then possible to grow the
lightsensitivecells of the retina and then use the outcome for
transplantation? What im looking for is if anyone know if research is
done in this area.

thank you for your time

ole
