Meeting on the Mesa 2021 | Developing bioengineered organs of porcine origin

Jeff Ross, PhD, Miromatrix, Eden Prairie, MN, describes the process of creating transplantable human organs from porcine organs. Harvested porcine organs initially undergo perfusion decellularization, which strips the porcine cells away, leaving a extracellular matrix and vascular network. The organ is then repopulated with human cells in a process known as perfusion recellularization, which additionally provides organ functionality. This interview took place at Meeting on the Mesa 2021.
