Temple scientists get grant to find heart-recovery therapies
Philadelphia Business Journal
Scientists at Temple’s School of Medicine were awarded a five-year, $11.6 million grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute to develop new strategies to prevent, slow or reverse heart damage caused by heart attacks. “We really haven’t done anything yet to intervene to reduce the injury and enhance regeneration and repair in the area of the heart that died. That’s our goal in this project,” said Steven Houser, director of the cardiovascular research center at Temple.
