At Cornell University, scientists managed to create fully synthetic immune organoids capable of generating antibodies on their own. These work very much like the immune systems of animal, but are completely external and do not depend on being part of a living, breathing body. Show More Summary
Cornell University engineers have created a functional, synthetic immune organ that produces antibodies and can be controlled in the lab, completely separate from a living organism. The engineered organ has implications for everything from rapid production of immune therapies to new frontiers in cancer or infectious disease research.
