12. NEW CELLS TO BREATHE WITH: Anyone who has ever struggled to breathe has a hint of the agony of cystic fibrosis, (CF) the choking lung disease. Thanks to the pioneering work of men and women like Rick Wetsel, Eva Zsigmond, and C. Thomas Caskey, CF may be on the way out. At the University of Texas, these scientists have used ESCs to create a transplantable source of new and healthy breathing cells.
