Regeneration[edit]

Perhaps that Regeneration_(biology) needs to be mentioned here; significant progress is being made that can be used for human therapy aswell (ie http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4888080.stm , Axolotl 81.242.234.114 (talk) 11:09, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

I am skeptical since regeneration is not a technique/technology. We should mention a technique/technology which enables regeneration. --Loremaster (talk) 19:36, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Benefits of Human Enhancement[edit]

The future of human enhancements will play an important role in the future of human health and quality of life. In the fields of pharmaceuticals, genetic engineering, nanotechnology and other enhancement devices scientists are discovering new ways to eradicate disease. From the pharmaceutical industry working on a new class of drugs that are mechanism-based and memory enhancing and drugs coated with nanoparticles to looking at devices that replace damaged body parts with artificial body parts using 3d printing. These are just a few of the many research projects that are happening now. Human enhancement will benefit many and create a healthier human population that will lead us into this new era of human research and development.
