Science Advance: Molecular Beacons Light Path to Cardiac Muscle Repair

ACTSI pilot award recipients, Young-sup Yoon, MD, PhD and Gang Bao, PhD, were co-senior authors on a publication that describes a method for purifying cardiac muscle cells from stem cell cultures using molecular beacons. Doctors could use purified cardiac muscle cells to heal damaged areas of the heart in patients affected by heart attack and heart failure.
