University of Minnesota scientists say they have for the first time created a beating heart in a laboratory. The discovery offers hope that the technique could be used to create a fully functioning heart. So far researchers have only conducted the experiment using rat and pig hearts, but they hope one day their technique will work on human hearts too.
