Although online registration for this event is currently closed, seats are still available. Please show up early if you wish to attend.  

THE 2014 ENGINEERING LECTURE SERIES, Engineering the Heart: From Cell Therapy to Computer Technology, explores how engineers are improving our cardiac medical care and extending our lives. From growing heart cells that beat to improving blood coagulation to wirelessly powering pacemakers, the merging of engineering and medicine leads to extraordinary innovations. 

Join us for an expert look at the treatments of the not-so-distant future from the engineers and doctors advancing health care technology.

Engineering a Broken Heart

The heart is a miraculous muscle. Yet every year for over one million people this vital organ quits. Heart muscle damage, most commonly caused by a heart attack, can lead to heart failure when the organ forms scar tissue rather than growing new muscle tissue. UW researchers, led by bioengineer and physician Charles Murry, are merging engineering technology, stem cells and medicine to regenerate heart muscle. The team recently published a significant breakthrough that brings us closer to addressing our nation and world’s top public health concern. Join us to learn how this treatment may save lives within the decade.

Charles Murry is a professor of pathology, cardiology and bioengineering.
