Wake Forest University is an international leader in Regenerative medicine. They have taken a lead in growing organs in labs for patients who need an organ transplant. Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) was the first in the entire world to successfully implant these lab grown organs. Today, they continue to work on more projects involving organ and tissue regrowth. [17] 

 Professor Kent Leach at UC Davis in Calif. is working on a new innovative way to regenerate bone using a patient’s own fat stem cells. This technique is supposed to help treat wounded battlefield soldiers in a new way. Leach has already obtained $1 million dollars in grant funding from the U.S. Army and National Institutes of Health to assistance him in his research.[18]

 American Society for Artificial Internal Organs (ASAIO) is an international center for young innovators that assists them in the advancement of artificial organ technologies and developments. These young innovators include undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students. ASAIO provides scientific guidance and active involvement to encourage young innovators in the artificial organs field.[19]


 A team of biomedical researchers grouped together at the Texas Heart Institute to gather research and make an artificial heart. Just like the Jarvik-2000, this artificial heart is pulseless but functions as actual heart. The team has attained $2.8 million federal grant from the National Institutes of Health to support their research and to build this artificial heart.[20]
