Grant to further heart transplant research

Rosenfeldt 082_322768Professor Frank Rosenfeldt, Department of Surgery, has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the Health Market Validation Program (Health MVP) to continue his research on transplant donor heart preservation. The research is currently in the pre-clinical stage. The grant will be used to further develop the device for a donor heart to be resuscitated and evaluated for transplant.
Hearts are easily damaged, and this device works to revive and keep a heart healthy after the donor has died and before transplant.  See detail of grant program at Health MPV.
