Texas Heart Institute - Dr. Doris Taylor Heart Laboratory

Project Details:

Dr. Doris Taylor, whose breakthroughs include work with heart stem cells and decelluraziation, is bringing her research to the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital.

The new lab, designed per Dr. Taylor's specifications, was the incentive she needed to bring her trail-blazing research to Houston. The new lab will allow Dr. Taylor and up to 10 research assistants to chart what's next for heart healthcare. Houston and THI should expect to hear more about "ghost hearts," adult stem cells, cell and gene therapy, and tissue engineering. All aimed at one day regenerating hearts and other organs.
