A cure for baldness? Scientists grow hair on hairless mice
Yes I think I can see the possibilities here. Bet I could make big money selling bald mice with hair?

Japanese researchers have sparked hopes of finding a cure for human baldness after successfully growing hair on hairless mice by implanting follicles created from stem cells, Agence France Presse reports.
According to The Wall Street Journal, a team of scientists led by professor Takashi Tsuji from Tokyo University of Science were also able to play around with the density and color of the hair.

Implanting follicles created from stem cells huh? Interesting, but it sounds like it's going to be well outside the price range of your average balding male.
