Growing human replacement parts on a donor animal? Why, someone should write a book about that shit ...

Bioengineering to Generate Healthy Skin
SKin on miceScienceDaily (Oct. 17, 2011) — Scientists at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M -- Carlos III University) are participating in research to study how to make use of the potential for auto regeneration of stem skills from skin, in order to create, in the laboratory, a patient's entire cutaneous surface by means of a combination of biological engineering and tissue engineering techniques.

Skin is a tissue that naturally renews itself throughout our lives thanks to the existence of epidermic stem cells. "We have found that this regenerative potential can be preserved in vitro (in the laboratory) if the cells are joined and become part of generated skin using tissue bioengineering techniques," explains Marcela del Río, of UC3M's Bioengineering. The research group in which she participates, made up of scientists from the UC3M, from CIEMAT (the Center for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research) and CIBERER (the Center for Biomedical Research in the Rare Disease Network) of the Carlos III Health Institute, has been working with this type of adult stem cells for years, with the objective of using them to regenerate patients' skin.

That reminds me of another

Experiment.  Not near as advanced as above though. A human looking ear made of cow cartilage grown on the back of a nude mouse. Creepy pic  http://tinyurl.com/6rbkdl

It should be animal skins on humans!

Why not? Now tell me you wouldn't want some kind of animal skin genetically attached to you. Anywho I can see this really helping out the burn victims that happen to need multiple skin graphs.
