We congratulate the Holland Hybrid Heart consortium with receiving 10.4 million euros from NWO.
The Holland Hybrid Heart (HHH) consortium, led by cardiothoracic surgion Jolanda Kluin (Erasmus MC), aims to develop the first functional artificial organ. The HHH is a soft robotic heart with an innerlining of the patient’s own cells. Together, the HHH resembles the healthy human heart as closely as possible. This safe alternative to a donor heart is essential to offer a lifesaving solution for thousands of heart failure patients.
MDR researchers Carlijn Bouten and Patricia Dankers are also part of the HHH consortium.
