The general objective of the research project LifeValve is to develop a new therapeutic strategy to treat heart valve disease. In particular, the development of a tissue engineered living heart valve, with the capacity of growth in accordance with the growths of children, which can be implanted without an operation by minimally invasive catheter technology will be addressed. This could eventually make highly dangerous open heart surgery in children unnecessary.
