This three-dimensional model of a left heart ventricle was engineered with a nanofiber scaffold seeded with heart cells. It could be used to study diseases, test drugs and develop patient-specific treatments for heart conditions such as arrhythmia.  (Luke MacQueen and Michael Rosnach/Harvard University)
