Laboratory for Organ Recovery, Regeneration and Replacement (LOR3)

The LOR3 is focused on creating organ support systems that provide extended physiologic support for injured organs, bioengineering platforms for organ recovery and regeneration as well as developing artificial pulmonary assist devices. The lab maintains a full complement of devices used for extracorporeal life support and has developed durable support systems for lung and liver with translational potential. It works in partnerships with programs at VUMC, Carnegie Mellon University and Columbia University. The LOR3 is dedicated to translating basic science research into clinical platforms for patients with end organ failure.
