Magnet-Powered Nanoparticle Superheaters Could Transform Organ Donation - NOVA Next

Across the U.S., 22 people die waiting for an organ transplant every day. And even when organs are available, many fail to reach a matched recipient before becoming unusable. Today, about 120,000 people are on the waitlist for an organ transplant in ...and more »

Reviving Frozen Organs: Nanotech May Pave the Way - Live Science

Frozen organs could be brought back to life safely one day with the aid of nanotechnology, a new study finds. The development could help make donated organs available for virtually everyone who needs them in the future, the researchers say. The number ...and more »

With Iron Nanoparticles, Cryopreserved Tissue Springs Back to Life - Discover Magazine (blog)

Every year, thousands of donated organs go to waste because they cannot be matched with recipients in the brief window of time in which they are still viable. Extending the shelf-life of organs could help alleviate this problem, potentially cutting ...and more »

Iron nanoparticles could bring organs back from a deep freeze - New Atlas

According to researchers at the University of Minnesota (UM), over 60 percent of the hearts and lungs donated for transplantation every year need to be disposed of because they can't be stored on ice for longer than four hours. While deep-freezing ...and more »
