#Razor's Emma Keeling talks to scientists at a Canadian company called Novoheart who have developed mini-hearts made from pluripotent stem cells, which will help to reduce the cost and length of testing vital heart medicines and therapies on real hearts. She also delves deeper into their work in developing gene therapies for heart disease, which target the mutations at their source.
