A Rat's Pumping Heart

Scientists have grown a functioning heart!

★ While they have only tested it on rats, this is still a huge discovery in the science community. 

★ Thousands of people every year are put on organ transplant lists and they often die before they can receive a new organ.

★ Luckily, researchers from the University of Minnesota might have found a solution. They've grown a heart using stem cells!

★ But how was the heart grown? First, the heart was removed from a dead rat and its cells were washed out with detergent, leaving the heart’s “framework”. 

★ Next, scientists injected new heart cells from newborn rats into the heart frame.

★ After just one week, the heart was beating on its own! To learn more about this scientific breakthrough, check the video!
