Please come join us to celebrate Organ Regeneration at MGH at a special event showcasing our scientists on October 6th, 2014. You can view the invitation here.
Our work on the decellularization of human and porcine lungs made the March 2014 cover of The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation.
Our work on decellularizing hearts has been featured by The Scientist’s Facebook page as their Image of the Day for July 22nd.
Check out the Nature News article titled “Tissue engineering: How to build a heart” that features our work on regenerating hearts.
Our recent publication in Nature Medicine titled “Regeneration and experimental orthotopic transplantation of a bioengineered kidney” can be found here.

Come see us present our research at ISHLT 2013 this year. Sarah will be presenting “Up-Scaling Decellularization and Whole Organ Culture for Human Lung Regeneration” and Jacques will be presenting “Decellularizing Human Hearts: Characterizing Native Cardiac Matrix for Clinical Translation”.
Congratulations to Jacques Guyette for winning the Clinical Research Day Abstract Award from the Department of Surgery for his abstract titled “Perfusion Decellularization of Human Hearts: Translating Whole-Organ Decellularization to Clinical Scale”.
