It was ALL OVER the internet (check out Observations of the Nerd for some particularly good coverage), of course you know I HAD to blog it, right? Sadly, it got taken over in the first week by the Oxytocin weeks of DOOM (oh, it was doom, there were a lot of late nights that week, Sci can’t give up her day job, you know).
But here I am. And here it is. And for those media outlets that complained that you couldn’t find the paper in the PNAS issue and acted all mysterious, Sci got the paper. Cause Sci’s got CONNECTIONS. Connections which involve emailing the PR people who put out the press release. Simple, yet effective! May I recommend it to you sometime.
Chen et al. “Bioengineered corporeal tissue for structural and functional reconstruction of the penis.” PNAS, 2009.
(Also, some of the pics are probably NSFW for those of you who have coworkers sensitive to scientific depictions of the anatomy of the penis. You were warned.)
