Hey Dr Karl, (Dr) Jess and Dr Alice. I have a question concerning human/ animal biology. Its quite well known that pigs have a close genetic line to humans and there is alot of people struggling with past joint and ligament problems. So I was wondering would there be a way to recycle ligaments and cartlidge from deceased pigs then some how grind it to a fine paste / powder then through a keyhole procedure inject the solution into the patients joint then follow up with a curing solution to return the cartlidge back to a firmer state in addition after some rehab on the joint the cartlidge will be almost restored? Im sorry im not well educated I just like to think. Congrats Jess on handing in your PhD
