This article from Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News features research by Bill Murphy, Harvey D. Spangler Professor of biomedical engineering.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison are using the decellularized husks of plants such as parsley, vanilla, and orchids to form three-dimensional scaffolds that can then be primed and seeded with human stem cells to optimize their growth in the lab dish and, ultimately, create novel biomedical implants.
