The Glass Liver

Strange but fascinating scientific news...a researcher is creating an artificial liver out of glass. The point isn't to make a liver replacement inside the body, but try to make a simulation of how the liver works that can be studied without animal testing. He's also running computer simulations. It amazes me that we still don't know how the liver works, after all these years. Doctors don't know everything.
