Hossein Tavassoli from Swinburne University and the University of New South Wales took the FameLab Australia audience into the miniature world of the heart. His vision – a future of nanotech tools capable of mending heart damage.
Cardiovascular disease affects more than 3.7 million Australians per year. Hossein Tavassoli is working towards an understanding of how different cells of the heart interact. With this insight, new methods of heart repair can be developed through 3D-printing and microfabrication technology. Hopefully, no one will need die of a broken heart again.
