The project "IndiHEART: Individualized heart muscles for the functional treatment of heart failure" of the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) is the second winner in the innovation competition "Organ replacement from the laboratory" and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for two years with two million euros . Scientists from the University Medical Center Göttingen, the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen, the German Primate Center - Leibnitz Institute for Primate Research Göttingen and the Leibniz Universität Hannover are working together in the project.

The IndiHEART project partners will develop under the direction of Prof. Dr. Wolfram-Hubertus Zimmermann, Director of the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the UMG, a process for the automated production of human cardiac muscle tissue from induced pluripotent stem cells for the precise application in patients with cardiac muscle weakness.
