A 3-D Model of a Human Heart Ventricle

This three-dimensional model of a left heart ventricle was engineered with a nanofiber scaffold seeded with heart cells. It could be used to study diseases, test drugs and develop patient-specific treatments for heart conditions such as arrhythmia. Credit: Luke MacQueen and Michael Rosnach/Harvard University
