A biology lab at Loyola University was able to regenerate this elbow joint in a chicken embryo. The research could mean big possibilities for scientists looking to coax the human body into regenerating its own joints.
In a biology lab at Loyola University New Orleans, something miraculous happened — something no scientist had seen before. Biology professor Rosalie Anderson and her undergraduate students cut a tiny hole to remove just the elbow joint of a chicken embryo’s wing. Eighteen hours later, a new joint amazingly grew back.
Tulane University says two of its seniors have designed a T-shirt and wristband bearing the name and jersey number of Green Wave football player Devon Walker.
Brad Girson and Jesse Schwartz started their own clothing line as sophomores. Now, the university says, net proceeds from sales of the shirts and wristbands will be donated to a fund established for Walker.
Walker suffered a cervical spine fracture Saturday during Tulane's game against Tulsa.
