Millions of people are currently on organ transplant waiting lists. Their lives depend on the availability of a suitable donation. However, what if people in need of replacement organs didn’t have to worry about this? I hope to use my engineering education to develop readily available lab-grown organs that will produce no immune response. Maybe they won't be sold on store shelves like the lung in my drawing, but 'spare parts for people' could improve the quality of life for many.
