Lab-grown blood, artificial organs – the science transforming our health

Feature in the Observer, looking at medical techniques that are being perfected in order to improve healthcare in the near future. It looks at “second-generation radiotherapy” and says that, by working in collaboration with medical imaging physicists, scientists are developing techniques that they say will soon allow them to image tumours in real-time during radiotherapy, so they can accurately locate tumours and deliver higher doses of radiation while avoiding damage to the neighbouring organs.
