Think about our body

conistst of organs

organs conist of tissues

tissues consiists of cells

the problems that our cells face cause aging

how cells work

everything starts in stem cells

stem cells are very good in diviving

daughter cells can rapidly produce tissue

when you lose tissue

stem cells helps us to live for 80 years or longer instead of a couple of months

Idea: how about harvesting stem cells?

in the lab

then give them back to patients who need them

dogma: this is impossible

started research in stem cells

50 years ago

why the gut?

how it works

How the research turned out

need to take a couple of steps

results

the next steps

use the stem cells instead of whole organs for donor transplantation
