by: on November 18, 2015

The Zurich Heart project is a multidisciplinary and inter-institutional cooperation between the University of Zurich, the University Hospital Zurich (USZ), the German Heart Institute Berlin (Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin, DHZB) and the ETH Zurich aimed at developing new technologies for left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). LVADs are an alternative to heart transplantation in end-stage heart failure patients. In 17 research groups, some of the main challenges occurring with those devices, such as energy transfer, thrombo-embolytic complications and control shall be solved. The Zurich Heart project was accepted as strategic project by “Hochschulmedizin Zürich” in 2012.
