What if patients who needed new organs did not have to wait for their turn to come up on the organ donation list? Researchers are working to make that a reality.

Dr. Zain Khalpey at the University of Arizona Medical School is one of them. He is a cardiothoracic surgeon, among many other things there, and is trying to stop people from dying while waiting for a new heart or lung. He will be giving a talk about his work on Wednesday in Phoenix, as part of the school’s Mini-Medical School 2.0 series.
