Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Technologies for Ex-Vivo Cardiac Repair

What is needed to develop the technologies that will allow reparative interventions to be performed on excised natural hearts that have been overhauled ex vivo and replanted?


This will involve keeping the myocardium alive and sterile for extended periods that are long enough to complete the interventions while being able to also perform the necessary reparative interventions.
