Growing new body parts, organs, and 3dprinting them as well. An obvious though poorly funded field of research. I guess there's too much potential for radical life extention here to really get this going. Not to mention the cosmetic uses (as if that were necessary).

Hemopure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-xwhh9eyks

Seems like a good combination.
One could use this Hemopure to get oxygen to tissues untill the vascularization process has congeeled. (I could see where trying to get Blood Pressure up to normal 120/70 in freshly printed tissues would be an explosive problem)

H+! Great video Damianpoirier!

So many people will be saved when waiting for an organ transplant is reduced from a few years, to a few hours. Research in the field of Regenerative Medicine must move forward.

[Update] Videos on Human Progress:
By collectively voting in favor of a video, we can now promote any video to h+ status, (a symbol often associated with human progress / enhancing the human condition).

Likewise, we may now rank videos deemed negative (-h) to human progress, by voting it all the way down.
