Scientific Discoveries // Vocal Cords
Using cells from human donors, doctors have, for
the first time, built a set of vocal cords from
scratch. The cells were urged to form a tissue that
mimics vocal fold mucosa - vibrating flaps in the
larynx that create the sounds of the human voice.

speech to patients who lost their vocal cords due
to illness or surgery.
