I met an engineer a decade ago that was working on a machine to process bone marrow, harvest the stem cells and inject them into the heart. All one machine using your own bone marrow, completing the processing bedside, and delivering the stem cells to the damaged heart.

A friend of mine (since retired) wrote a number of ground-breaking articles on using bone marrow to treat leukemia when he was at Johns Hopkins. I think he was the first to put bone marrow to practical use.
