When a heart is removed from an organ donor it is placed in a cooler with ice, subsequently damaging the heart, giving doctors 2-6 hours to transport the heart to the recipient. This limited time contributes to more than 70% of donated hearts being discarded, leading to countless deaths each year. Vercel is building a proprietary subzero preservation system which will extend the life of a heart by over 1700%. Contact Vercel : vercel@uofthatchery.ca
