There is a team of researchers at the university of Tel Aviv, which is located behind the heart. 3D printing is reported to be the same size as a kaninhjärta and is complete with cells, blood vessels and chambers.

a patient's own cells, but does not work in this stage of the research. According to the researchers, the next step is to make the larger hearts and then try to teach them to behave like human hearts.
