(Belfast Telegraph) Scientists are helping a man grow a new nose, according to reports.

Experts at University College London are using the man’s bone marrow cells to help him replace the nose he lost to cancer.

Science magazine Focus said Professor Alex Seifalian was assisting the unnamed 53-year-old, whose bone marrow cells were currently growing in the lab on two nose-shaped scaffolds.

“We’ve got two noses growing, just in case someone drops one,” Professor Seifalian said.
