mouse with human ear
Explanation:
"Just 15 years ago, Bob Langer and his colleague Joseph Vacanti pioneered a remarkable new process- growing human tissues in the lab. Back in 1987, Langer and Vacanti couldn't get their work published; journal editors didn't see any practical applications. Today, the pair are acknowledged as the fathers of the field of tissue engineering. Now, Langer, Vacanti and his brother Charles, as well as teams of researchers around the world, pursue the day when replacement tissues and organs are readily available, custom-made for those who need them."

"Mouse with Human Ear

Back in 1997, a rather bizarre photograph suddenly became very famous. It showed a totally hairless mouse, with what appeared to be a human ear growing out of its back. That photograph prompted a wave of protest against genetic engineering, which continues today."
