Hi Dr. Rassman, In a recent article i found that it is actually possible to transplant the follicle’s dermal sheath cells from one person to another which can lead to new hair growth.

Thanks!! appreciate the work you are doing!!
We know that the body will reject hair transplanted from one person to another, but the very reputable Dr. Angela Christiano is quoted in this article and her experimental technique shows feasibility (I did not verify her work for this review).
So to answer your question, in research this is possible, but real world applications aren’t quite there. It’s early experimentation with the bigger picture being focused on generating joint cartilage for arthritis patients.
