At Temple, a group of researchers under the leadership of Steven Houser studying heart repair has learned that their funding will be cut by 10 percent. It couldn’t come at a worse time. "We have the best tools that we've ever had to make rapid progress towards developing novel therapies," said Houser, a professor at the School of Medicine.
