Switching Heart Cells

A heart attack does serious damage to the cells that drive the heart. Cells that would normally create new blood vessels and heal the heart often become useless scar-forming cells. UNC School of Medicine's Eric Ubil discovered a way to reverse this process, turning scar cells into blood-vessel builders and healing the heart in mice. Listen in as UNC-TV's Daniel Lane and Eric Ubil discuss this research, its significance and the next steps toward practical application for patients.
