The dead heart project
On Saturday 24th August CCRG had the pleasure of hosting the Heart Transplant Project Summit. It was a great opportunity to discuss the progress made over the last 2.5 years towards our goal of increasing the viability and availability of transplantable hearts. We discussed projects milestones and data, what has been accomplished to date and future plans.
The CCRG team was joined by collaborators and heart transplant specialists from The Alfred (Melbourne), St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, The Prince Charles Hospital (Brisbane), and The Institute for Molecular Bioscience (UQ). The combined expertise of everyone in attendance will guide this project forward with the goal of improving our understanding of both current and future heart transplants techniques.
