ISU genetic research on turtles may someday help people survive heart attacks

Researchers at Iowa State University are studying the genetics of three types of turtles with the ultimate goal of helping people survive life-threatening incidents, like heart attacks. Nicole Valenzuela, an ISU professor of ecology, evolution and organismal biology, says they’re growing what are known as organoids from turtle livers. “Organoids are a simplified version of […]
