Bioengineering strategies for cardiovascular disease and regeneration

Research Grant Recipient: Daniel Garry, MD, PhD

Award Value: $250,000

Research Focus: Cardiovascular disease

Project Summary: Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in the United States, and many patients need heart transplants to survive. Currently, heart transplantation is limited based on the scarcity of donor organs. This proposal aims to see if it is possible to develop humanized and personalized hearts in gene-edited animals.
