Jörg C. Gerlach has invented a way to harvest stem cells from the healthy skin of burn victims, put them into a solution, and spray those skin stem cells back onto the burns and regenerate healthy skin in a matter of days.

Hand of a premature baby lit by ultrared light.
This light is use to find the baby’s veins, which are very small, to allow drugs and fluids to be administered intravenously. Babies born before 37 weeks of development require constant monitoring in a contained environment. Their immune system and internal organs are underdeveloped and they have difficulty maintaining a constant body temperature. Photographed at The Sofia Childrens Hospital, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
