The development of human cardiovascular systems physiology is inhibited by the lack of multiscale functional physiological data, which represents human heart physiology at the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and system levels. We have developed an experimental approach to study explanted human hearts in vitro at multiple physiological scales with a wide… CONTINUE READING
