      HI Nerdkill3r

      I study the ovary because it is somewhat unique in the way that he heals. So if you cut the surface of your skin or maybe an organ in your abdominal it sometimes heals with a scar which can look ugly and in some cases cause extreem pain and even cause the organ to fail. This is true for every organ including the skin (which is an organ) except the ovary. When the ovary releases an egg the surface is cut open and the egg comes out however the ovary never heals with a scar.

      This is why its interesting to me. IT does something that other organs can’t do and I want to know how this happens :o)

      If I can find out how it happens we can maybe use the knowledge to make medicines that will stop other organs scarring.
