Fighting for the Human Heart

Through cellular research, Prof. Pinar Zorlutuna is working to extend the time that donor hearts are useable in transplantation. She has built the closest thing possible to the human heart in the laboratory and helped identify and test a preservation solution that improves the condition of a donor heart and extends its preservation time from four to eight hours.
