Sounds miraculous and I'm usually skeptical of medical articles that make such remarkable claims, but since it's from a legit news source I'm inclined to accept it with some trepidation.
I'd like to see the results of human trials and when this is used more extensively as a therapy. As for our purposes-if they can find a way to reprogram the scalp to grow hair like we do at the back of our heads then it will be a potential cure.
I doubt the researchers behind it care or even think about using it in such a capacity. When it comes to the medical needs hierarchy, the follicularly challenged are at the bottom of the list.
